Completed in 2017, the Bloomberg Headquarters in London sets new standards for sustainability and innovation, and raises the bar for future office buildings around the world. Learn more about how the building’s facade melds into the city of London in this video.
The building height protects key views of St Paul’s Cathedral whilst respecting neighbouring historic buildings. Its striking façade is defined by a structural sandstone frame in response to the adjacent Magistrate’s Court, with a series of large-scale bronze fins that shade the floor-to-ceiling glazing. The fins give the building a visual hierarchy and rhythm as they vary in scale, pitch and density across each façade according to orientation and solar exposure, whilst also being an integral part of the building’s natural ventilation system.
