The Gas Holder Triplets, or Siamese Triplets, are arguably King’s Cross’s most striking residential development. The scheme comprises of three Victorian gas holders, which have been impeccably redesigned by architects Wilkinson Eyre. Each gas holder elegantly encases 145 high specification apartments, with floor to ceiling windows with stunning views over the city, Regent’s Canal and neighbouring schemes, Triplets Park and Gas Holder Park.  The Triplets scheme is no doubt one of the area’s most striking new developments; not least because it is one that, due to its historical aspect, has an especially strong connection to its ever-evolving locale.  The marketing suite utilised Vitrabond cladding panels finished in VB7250 Sparkling Dark Grey Metallic from Valcan, Wilkinson Eyre Architects completed this iconic design – this part of the development has since gone onto to be used by Chapel Down Gin as a bar, distillery and restaurant
