Introducing The Terracotta Powerhouse


Cadence, an architecturally striking urban landmark in London’s re-energised King’s Cross neighbourhood, will bring 103 private residential homes to market on 27 February 2020.

Prominently positioned at the top of Lewis Cubitt Park, Cadence’s distinctive terracotta facade and dramatic arches will provide a stunning counterpoint to Coal Drops Yard. Its unique design and naming celebrate the electric ‘rhythms’ of the area, with bold and playful arches that realize the emerging and historic contexts of its surroundings.

As developer Argent LLP’s residential pipeline moves into the final phases, Cadence represents one of the last opportunities for purchasers to buy in King’s Cross and will form the keystone of the vibrant neighbourhood.

Living at Cadence - An Urban Oasis

Designed by award-winning Alison Brooks Architects, a contemporary colonnade at the base of the building and a striking crest at the top, forms a welcoming destination from afar.

A large colonnaded courtyard with a tranquillity water feature sits at the heart of Cadence. Here residents can escape the hustle and bustle of city life and immerse themselves in a quiet sanctuary – a true urban oasis - where the calming curves of the enveloping arches reflect on the water.

Cadence offers panoramic corner apartments, floor-to-ceiling windows and private recessed balconies to make the most of the enviable, south-facing vistas across King’s Cross and beyond. Residents will benefit from access to a number of roof terraces, designed to extend the apartments to the outdoors, as well as a flexible studio space on the tenth level.

Flexible and Contemporary Offering

Cadence offers a collection of 103, studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments that radiate light, warmth and character. Fifty-one different spatial configurations for the apartments have been carefully crafted to provide flexible living to suit every individual with interior design led by Conran & Partners. In addition, 60 units within Cadence will be managed by Pocket Living, offering design-led rental homes for middle-earning local workers who positively contribute to their community.

Robert Evans, Partner at Argent LLP and CEO of King’s Cross, said: “We are thrilled to be able to announce the launch of Cadence. The residential-led mixed use scheme reinforces our ambitions to create an exciting new destination that serves the working, living, thriving community in King’s Cross. This launch, at the turn of a new decade, marks a significant milestone in our wider King’s Cross scheme as it will be the penultimate phase of residential to complete.”

Alison Brooks, Founder of Alison Brooks Architects, said: “I’m delighted to see Cadence emerge after a careful and creative design relationship with the Argent team. Cadence will be an urban sentinel and a neighbourhood landmark. It’s about architecture with character. We’ve created a new language of brick arches and vaulted spaces that echo the exuberant architecture of King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations. It will reveal itself slowly as you move around and through it; in detail it will be experienced as a beautiful journey home. All of these elements work together to create a picturesque sequence to celebrate living in King’s Cross.”
