The Building // Overview

A building
the culture

Originally designed by Ralph Erskine and Lennart Bergstrom, the duo created a visionary building with striking and memorable features, such as the sky top Crow’s Nest meeting room with 360 views over the West End and River Thames and a one-of-a-kind internal timber-cladded atrium following the buildings distinctive curvature. They both believed that architectural qualities such as these would encourage the occupants to engage more socially and therefore provide a platform for a happier and more creative workplace.

this extraordinary space of epic proportions will be transformed to create a sensational new environment, for creativity and culture.
