Raising The Roof

Samsung heating and cooling has helped in the creation of a spectacular rooftop restaurant and bar in London’s CanaryWharf.

Street Feast has transformed a number of derelict and disused spaces into eating and drinking destinations, bringing together a selection of pop-up bars and restaurants across London.

Giant Robot opened in CanaryWharf earlier this year. Giant Robot, located in east London‘s biggest roof garden in Crossrail Place, is completely glazed from floor to ceiling, allowing panoramic views across Canary Wharf, the North Dock and Billingsgate Market. These views come with the requirement for a well designed and installed air conditioning system to cope with the building‘s solar demand and maintain the area at the perfect temperature for visitors and staff.

Nationwide Air Conditioning undertook the design, supply and installation of the kitchen, restaurant and bar‘s heating and cooling solution, in partnership with Green Planet Design Engineers.


Nationwide chose the Samsung water cooled VRF outdoor units due to their ability to provide a large single 112kw water cooled VRF system. Samsung says the units also offer a simple user experience for employees with an easy to use touch screen central control system.

The heating and cooling solution comprised of 17 exposed ducted fan coil units, which were felt to integrate well with the open ceiling and warehouse aesthetics of the space.

Warren Davies, Regional Sales Manager at DYSK Air Conditioning, said: “Nationwide Air Conditioning fitted the Samsung unit with out any issues and we provided full support to the team throughout the installation and commissioning process. The performance of the water cooled VRF outdoor units has been exemplary and provided a consistent cool temperature whilst in use.“

Perry Jackson, Head of Air Conditioning at Samsung, said: “At Samsung our priority is to develop products that will not only deliver a strong heating and cooling solution, but also blend seamlessly into the design of the building that it is being installed in. We will continue working hard with our research and development teams to produce products that match the needs of the market.“
