The 16-story BP-3 building in London's surging Canary Wharf, a new financial district east of central London, is the new European headquarters for the State Street Bank Corporation. Located at the eastern end of Canary Wharf's east/west axis, the building serves as an entry point into the estate. In order to establish it's presence as a gateway, KPF's design complements the surrounding architecture, while creating an identity distinctive from these primarily glass structures. KPF accomplished this by combining the granite stone similar to that used in London's historic buildings, with a glass skin. The granite is used as veneer panels within the light and silvery metal curtainwall system, giving the appearance thinness and delicacy. The width of the stone panels becomes thinner with each higher floor.
