This 12,400sqm transformation of an existing brutalist Siefert designed office building will become the latest workplace on offer by co-working specialist WeWork, refurbishing and extending the building into a dynamic environment for creativity, focus, and connectivity. To meet the demands of a cutting-edge contemporary office and vastly improve the thermal and acoustic properties required, the existing building was stripped back to its frame and re-clad with pre-cast stone, aligning with the contextual aesthetic of its surroundings.
An opportunity was presented to make the street frontages more engaging for pedestrians by reducing the weight of the existing building above, by means of lighter materials and a more open form. 120 Moorgate takes it’s cues from it grand neighbours, but interprets them in a easily legible form, forming a bridge between historic and contemporary design in an iconic corner of London.
On the seventh floor, a roof terrace will benefit from views across the city, providing a much needed tranquil setting against the noise and bluster of the city.
We always love talking about architecture and what makes it great.
