200 Aldersgate

Interior Design, Architecture, Repositioning

In 2008 we were approached by Helical to redesign the common parts of the building, as well as a new external façade including a double height glazed podium section and glazed cladding above. The extensive refurbishment of the 380,000 sq ft building set new standards in workplace design, becoming a go-to example for future developments.

Maximising natural light and allowing views from the street were central to our design, while the podium also enables the building to be successfully multi-tenanted. On the first floor a new business lounge and café were introduced, linking the two blocks of the building and the two large receptions, and lobby areas were designed to welcome guests and increase circulation.
A people-first approach provided wellbeing facilities such as a cycle store for 220 bikes with shower and changing facilities. We also re-landscaped the external terraces to allow occupants to enjoy stunning views across the City of London and neighbouring Barbican Estate.
