An enhanced street presence for grade II* listed office building
John Robertson Architects for Obayashi Corporation
Contract value: undisclosed
The refurbishment of grade II* listed Bracken House provides an enhanced street presence, business lounges, offices and a roof terrace, and allows the Financial Times to return to its original headquarters. An enlarged entrance with glazed partitions and timber screens leads into a central atrium. Clear glazed roof panels above the lift shafts provide daylight, as do internal courtyards connecting the historic wings to the main office floor plate.
