11-19 Monument Street by Make Archtects in London

July 13, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by Make Archtects, located in London, United Kingdom. The nine-storey building offers 9,000m² of efficient, open-plan office space and incorporates retail and cafe facilities at ground level. The distinctive asymmetrical plan is determined by the constraints of the site, with the southern elevation curving gently to address the Monument and define an enlarged and newly activated public square at ground level. This elevation is clad in a faceted glazed facade which reflects the Monument to provide a spectacular backdrop to the new public square. The facade also lifts up at ground level to create entrances to the building and to the retail units on the ground floor.The roof is landscaped as a green terrace to create a striking fifth elevation which is overlooked from the top of the Monument, with the pillar structure’s shadow acting as the gnomon for a sundial set into the roof.

June 06, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

The office buildings will provide 14,300 m² of flexible office space suitable for major occupiers attracted to this prime location. The scheme carefully integrates a relevant mix of uses for the various retained buildings, including private and affordable residential and student accommodation; reconfiguring the city block with a coherent and sympathetic design. Retail and restaurant uses at the base of the scheme feed the tributaries at either side of the site linking the busy urban thoroughfare of High Holborn to the quieter listed Georgian terraces of Bedford Row to the rear.
