As our 24-storey residential project in Cardiff nears completion, it has been announced that the project will be officially named ‘The Copper Works’. The building’s name is a tribute to the rich historical copper mining heritage of Wales, and the deep red façade in its design is reflective of this industrial past. The naming of a scheme has also impacted further design decisions, with interiors, soft furnishings, and wayfinding within the development taking inspiration from the name.
The £47 million, build-to-rent development embodies the rich industrial history of Wales and pays homage to the success of The Great Orme Mines, the world’s largest prehistoric copper mine.
The Copper Works, located on Tyndall Street in the city’s Capital Quarter, will consist of 307 mixed one and two-bed, and studio apartments, and sits just a short 10-minute walk from Cardiff city centre.
The development will feature several social spaces and amenities, including two rooftop terraces and a sky lounge on level 22 set back from the main façade. It aims to provide residents with an oasis from city life where they can dine and socialise. Lower levels will enjoy a welcoming reception area on the ground floor, which will be serviced by a dedicated on-site resident services team, as well as a bookable meeting room on level one.
The Copper Works completes later this year.
