The extensive and innovative refurbishment included a new external façade and major internal refurbishment. The front façade has been replaced by a double height glazed podium section with glazed cladding above.
This maximises natural light and gives a transparent appearance, allowing views into the building from the street. The new podium also enables the building to be successfully multi-tenanted. MoreySmith designed two large receptions and lobby areas including a cycle store for 220 bikes with shower and changing facilities. On the first floor a new business lounge and café now links the two blocks that make up the building. Many of the external terraces have also been given a new lease of life, allowing occupants to enjoy stunning views across the city.
