An isometric view of the ground floor. The bar, co-work space and winter garden is linked by a vibrant green tiled floor. The facade is a grid of narrow glazed pivot doors and windows - bringing a more human scale to the building.
Project: Bloom Farringdon
Client: HB Reavis
Date: Due to complete 2021
Location: Farringdon, London
We were selected by developers HB Reavis to work on a new 135,000 sq ft commercial building in London. We won the project at an Archiboo pitch event at MIPIM UK in 2017. The brief from our client was to develop bold designs for three expansive external terraces that the building benefits from. We were subsequently appointed to work on all the common areas in the building, including a gym, bar, cafe and auditorium.
‘Bloom’ was been designed by John Robertson Architects and sits above the Elizabeth Line station at Farringdon. Our designs imagines a co-working garden with growing tables that encourage building users to spend time outdoors and grow their own vegetables. We designed pergola structures that create outdoor-rooms for meetings, exercise or relaxation.
We completely reimagined the ground floor of the building, creating an indoor/outdoor winter garden and open plan social spaces that are more like a hotel lobby than a typical corporate office.
