Located alongside the new Jubilee Line station at Canary Wharf, Citibank's new headquarters occupies a key position in this emerging financial quarter of London and heralds the next phase in the area's continuing expansion. Aiming to be simple, elegant and functional throughout, the western building rises seventeen floors above plaza level. Liberated from services, it is able to contain all the Bank's activities, including the two trading floors, a staff restaurant, an auditorium and a gymnasium, while the four floors below plaza level contain car-parking and IT support facilities. The lofty main atrium is flanked by secondary atria, which step back to allow daylight and fresh air into the depths of the office floors. Highlighting the drama and sense of space of the main atrium, an installation by the artist Bridget Riley is suspended over the atrium's sixteen floors, appearing to float in space.
