As architects for three buildings within their own masterplan, we have set a vision for reinforcing a city edge with social and economic life on this important route from Meridian Square to Stratford’s Theatre Square. Our adjacent hotel and residential buildings are currently under construction.

The masterplan proposed five buildings to make best use of the site’s narrow, linear form.

The office building addresses Stratford Station and engages the various levels of its public steps that connects the town centre bridge to Meridian Square culminating in a tiered and colonnaded frontage with retail activity set back to extend the public realm.

Carefully fabricated components including a reconstituted stone frieze with vitreous enamelled steel framing and fins provide a rigorous contemporary facade with solar shading and privacy screening. The mass of the building is split by a series of winter gardens, here the façade transforms to glazed louvres.

This project combines two streams of the practice’s work: strategic urban masterplanning and creating high quality sustainable workplaces. The project will have landscaped roof gardens and numerous winter gardens, all floors will have access to outdoor space and enjoy views to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the emerging cityscape.
