Designed with full height glazing to maximise the stunning panoramic views over Cheltenham and create light-filled accommodation, the spacious scheme features expansive terraces to connect the indoor and outdoor space.

The construction utilised a steel frame to minimise the additional weight on the existing building. Additionally, due to the high rise nature the fire protection and escape strategy was of paramount importance.

Having been a landmark building in Cheltenham’s skyline since 1974, the addition of two floors to Montpellier Tower required the building class to change from commercial to mixed-use.
