ESPLANADE OFFICE BLOCK
UNBUILT SCHEME PLANNING APPROVED 2013
BREEAM-RATED OFFICE DEVELOPMENT WITH BASEMENT CAR PARKING
We were commissioned to design an iconic office block for the world’s financial market, which would attract significant tenants to occupy the whole or part of the building. The design needed to be responsive to the image or ambitions of such occupants. We sought to produce a locally sensitive piece of streetscape and urban architecture. The design also had to achieve the highest environmental standards and indeed aimed to be graded ‘very good’ by the BREEAM Assessment.
