St. John Towers
QA+M Architecture has been selected for the renovation of St. John Towers in downtown Stamford. The project includes the complete rehabilitation of two 17-story silo-like apartment towers with 120 units of residential housing in each tower. The buildings were built in 1969 and are occupied.

More Information

The project is currently in the programming phase, with various design solutions under consideration. One option includes a curtain wall system with glass and perforated metal panels, which will create visual interest and add a playful sense of depth to the tower façades. In addition to offering a lively sculptural impact, the curtain wall system would be implemented to control the buildings’ solar gain, maximizing natural solar heat to reduce utility costs.

The project addresses the towers’ building systems, including major upgrades to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as accessibility, interior finishes, sustainability, exterior appearance and functionality.
