Copenhagen-based architecture firm Henning Larsen has revealed its first commission in London, a 47,000 square foot commercial office tower that aims to create a fully-engaging office space.
The tower, located on 105 Victoria Street near Buckingham Palace, will feature both social and physical activities. For instance, the space will include a covered public plaza it calls Village Square.
“Our ambition for the project is to create an active urban destination in the heart of London, a pocket of public space equal in energy and diversity to the city itself,” said Jacob Kurek, partner-in-charge at Henning Larsen.
Additionally, the building will feature a bicycle parking area, a gym, workshop and multipurpose event space. On the 10th floor, the building will have an indoor and outdoor “walk and talk track”. Even more, the building is anticipated to meet BREEAM’s ‘Outstanding” certification.
105 Victoria Street is being developed by property management firm BentallGreenOak on behalf of the Welput Fund and will be designed by Henning Larsen.
