Workspace 12 New Fetter Lane
Located at the western fringe of the City of London, 12 New Fetter Lane is a new 15-storey innovative office building. Designed to engage with its dramatic townscape context, the building forms a transitional element in the cityscape, while also improving the setting of Fetter Lane and Plough Place, creating a strong sense of place and identity.
The building features a tall single-storey ground floor level which includes the main building entrance, retail accommodation and service bay, with 12 floors of office accommodation above. The top of the building, above the final floor of offices, is articulated with a double-stacked plant room which contains two levels of plant, taking the total building height to 59 metres above New Fetter Lane.
The dynamic form of the building offers street vistas with changing skylines that will captivate interest when viewed from the surrounding streets. The building will become a recognised landmark and make a distinctive new addition to the Midtown district.
Sustainability is a principal design consideration of the project. The building encompasses a broad range of sustainable responses, which will contribute to the environmental performance of the completed scheme – a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as compared to the current Building Regulations (2010) and a target BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
