Arup, No. 8 Fitzroy Street, W1 London, UK

Phases 2 and 3 of the redevelopment of Arup’s headquarters replace two 1960s buildings to provide five levels of offices and associated meeting rooms, reception, café, library, conference and exhibition space. This supplements Phase 1, 13 Fitzroy Street completed in 2005 also by Sheppard Robson.

The building is designed around a central, full-height, open atrium, providing natural daylight to varying depths of floorplates and enabling interaction and connectivity through the building. The design of the atrium was only possible through developing a bespoke horizontal retractable fire curtain at alternate floor levels, maximising the views of a full-height feature glass wall by Alex Beleschenko.
