Dynamic and sensitive, simple yet complex, this project with its distinctive twisting tower has won a London South East RIBA Regional Award
Allies and Morrison with Arney Fender Katsalidis for The 100 Bishopsgate Partnership
Contract value: Confidential
The 100 Bishopsgate development comprises three mixed-use office buildings: a 40-storey tower, a lower podium block, and a neighbouring building, all connected with public realm interspersed with trees, planting, and a green wall. The tower’s twisting form is distinctive, its plan flaring downwards from a rectangle at the crown to a wider parallelogram at its base. The overall impression of the development is that of clarity, simplicity and legibility. Inside the tower, which houses the largest column-free floorplates in the City, the layout can be immediately understood.
Dynamic and sensitive, simple yet complex, this is a tour de force.
