Client: Hoxton Press
Contractor: Colville Estate Development Team
Manufacturer: Euroview Architectural Glass
Location: Hackney, London


Project Overview


Hoxton Press is a distinctive residential development consisting of two hexagonal towers on the Colville Estate in Hackney, London. The towers, standing 16 and 20 storeys high, are designed with a clear social architectural purpose, aiming to create a vibrant community while minimising the impact on the surrounding area. Euroview Architectural Glass played a crucial role in enhancing the towers’ aesthetic and functional appeal by supplying and processing advanced glazing solutions.


Project Goals


The primary objectives of the Hoxton Press development include:

  • Creating a visually appealing residential space with a strong sense of community.
  • Minimising the impact on surrounding buildings by reducing overlooking and potential loss of light.
  • Providing each apartment with unobstructed panoramic views of the city.
  • Integrating the towers seamlessly into the landscape with large glazed facades.


Our Role


Euroview Architectural Glass was selected to create an open and high-quality environment for Hoxton Press. We provided large glazed frontages and advanced glazing solutions that maximize natural light and offer panoramic views of the city, enhancing the overall living experience for residents.




For this project, Euroview supplied and processed glass that contributes to the open quality and panoramic views of the Hoxton Press towers. The glass facades were designed to blend the buildings seamlessly into the landscape, enhancing both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of the development.


Key Features of the Glass


  • Large Glazed Frontages: These provide unobstructed views and maximize natural light, creating bright and open living spaces.
  • Panoramic Views: The hexagonal design of the towers, combined with the column-free corners facilitated by the structural frame, offers residents breathtaking views of the city from their dual-aspect living rooms and balconies.
  • Seamless Integration: The large glazed facades on the ground floor help blend the towers into the surrounding landscape, enhancing the streetscape and public areas.




The glazing solutions provided by Euroview Architectural Glass significantly enhance the Hoxton Press residential towers. The large glazed frontages and panoramic views contribute to a high-quality living environment, while the design minimizes the impact on the surrounding area. The community cafe, with its vaulted ceilings and large glazed frontage, serves as a social hub, further enriching the community atmosphere.


Euroview Architectural Glass is proud to have contributed to the Hoxton Press development on the Colville Estate. By supplying and processing advanced glazing solutions, we have helped create a modern, vibrant residential community that offers stunning views and seamlessly integrates into the landscape. This project exemplifies our commitment to delivering innovative glass solutions that meet the complex needs of contemporary architectural designs.
