Working from Stage 3 onwards, Weedon Architects have developed the initial concept design to enable the scheme to be delivered on site. The HB Reavis development comprises 14,500 m2 of grade A workspace across seven levels, plus 600m2 of adaptable retail areas and 1400m2 of landscaped roof terraces.
The design for a new building has been carefully integrated within the area’s historic character whilst being constructed on top of Crossrail’s new station, the building’s elevations comprise a palette of materials including faience, terracotta and anodised aluminium. These create a clear, contemporary identity blending into the mix of Victorian warehouse style buildings along Farringdon Road.
A mix of public facing retail/food and beverage with commercial uses at ground floor plus seven flexible office floors accessed off a centralised core offers the ultimate in flexibility to occupiers.
Cyclist facilities are located on the ground and basement floors affording direct access to London’s North-South Cycle Superhighway. Roof terraces afford outside spaces with unrivalled views.
Bloom has achieved BREEAM oustanding, a Wired Score 'Platinum' and an Energy Performance Certificate rating 'A'.
