Project Description

Name – Windward House
Client – Islands Development/Harcourt
Location – St. Helier, Jersey

Windward House is the final phase of the Liberty Wharf development and defines the southern edge of a new public piazza, its elegant curved form following the main arterial roadway to the south and protecting the public space beyond to the north.

The building adopts a similar material palette to the neighbouring Liberation House but with distinct façade treatments to respond to its particular context and location. The cantilevered, curved 3 storey stone façade along the southern elevation is surmounted by a glazed upper floor and an overhanging curved roof canopy, in contrast to the more open, glazed elevations to the north and east.

Axis Mason also undertook the interior fit-outs for Heritage Oil, STM Fiduciaire, BDO and Acorn Finance.
