Sheppard Robson's office building features striking red facades and a double-height lobby with public café and co-working spaces
Sheppard Robson for Legal & General Investment Management Real Assets / Mitsubishi
Contract value: Confidential
This bold new office building packs a punch on delivering civic functions and social value. The brief was for 'an inspiring work environment that connects occupiers, fosters collaboration and maximises productivity, with green spaces for building users and the public'. The architect has delivered on all these fronts. Set back from Hammersmith Road, the development creates a new streetscape fronted by three new retail units at ground level as well as the building’s main entrance.
The facades are striking, with red, angled, anodised aluminium cladding panels. Inside, the double-height lobby includes a public café and co-working spaces. Office floors cater for all types of tenants, from companies in the life sciences to the tech sector. A public plaza to the east is intended to catalyse further public realm enhancements as neighbouring buildings are developed.
