The WAVE 119 Farringdon Road London

Client
RoCo sarL.

Proposed design for a new office building on the site of the former Guardian Newspaper Building designed by David Roden as a director of HKR.

Adjacent to the proposed Cross Rail Interchange at Farringdon the building is designed as a potential headquarters building for media and creative industries and will create 20,000m2 of new office space. The building form is derived from a response to the complex rights of light envelope that apply to the site.

In addition it is designed to exceed the Greater London Authorities renewable energy target, one of the first office buildings to do so in London.
