20 Finsbury Circus, EC2 London, UK
20 Finsbury Circus comprises the complex refurbishment of six floors of flexible office accommodation behind a period façade, in an unrivalled central London location. The proposal improves the retail offering at ground level and introduces a restaurant unit facing the circus.
The redevelopment blends the elegance of the 1900s Edwardian façade with a contemporary high quality interior. The impressive reception area contains a bespoke perforated metal feature wall, backlit with a unique pattern design subtly reflecting the Art Nouveau stainedglass windows of the main entrance. The materiality of this space is restrained, warm and natural, creating a sense of presence, subtly influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi. The building’s reformed character acknowledges and reflects the rich history of the area. Along with 73,604ft² of Cat A office space, with innovative design solutions to optimise floor-to-ceiling heights, the proposed roof terrace overlooking Finsbury Circus offers a stunning treetop oasis in the centre of the City.
20 Finsbury Circus is an exciting reactivation of a landmark building with excellent transport links. On one side, the bustle of Broadgate and the new Crossrail entrance, and on the other, the largest public open space in the City.
