Five-storey office building that forms part of the Spitalfields Market Development Area and completes the regeneration of the Spital Square area

The client brief was to design an office building that would maximise use of this brownfield site which is both in a conservation area and within a district of historic significance.

The site provided the opportunity for a building to be viewed on all but one of its facades. Even the roofscape is a façade in its own right, being viewed from the neighbouring 280 Bishopsgate.

Long views are also apparent on the site giving a unique opportunity to capture and frame elements and change the appearance of the building from different angles.
