Buckingham Green is a remodelled 1970s office complex with residential and work space. The original tower has been reclad and the podium stripped away, to be replaced by an independent building on either side. The tower has been elegantly refurbished with black anodised glazing and a steel envelope to reinforce its Miesian roots. The massing of the two other buildings respond to their immediate historic context. Both have different and exuberant approaches to the facade – one rich and pattern textured brick, the other a black patterned metal latticework facade. New public connections at the ground level and quality paving, street trees and active frontages will enhance the wider area.
