function office, retail
contributed by davidb

Originally intended to consist of one monolithic block, this scheme developed into five different buildings, of different heights and appearances, arranged around a new public square. The pedestrian routes into the square are narrow (6.0m) by todays standards and arranged so that it is imposible to see straight through the development in one glance. Shops line the ground floor spaces to give the area some purpose. Above ground level, all the accommodation is rentable office space. It is rumoured that all the floor plates, in each of the four major buildings, line through with each other horizontally, so that if a tennant wants more space in the future, it is practically possible to build a new link to an adjacent building. The buildings themselves are far from ground breaking, but do incorporate some sustainable features; timber brises-soleil and concrete structural frames for thermal mass. The scheme presents a new paradigm for office development in the City of London.
