Did You Know?
Looking out over the Thames, with open views of the city’s rapidly changing skyline, the 1978 Sea Containers House building, which has echoes of a great cruise liner berthed on the river’s edge, was designed by the celebrated American modernist architect Warren Platner ( renowned for his ocean liner interiors.)
It took over one year to construct the copper hull with marine ply, where each and every copper shingle, together with tens of thousands of copper rivets, were hand painted to create an intentionally aged finish. 160,000 nails were used to construct the copper hull.
