88 Wood Street - London, UK

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners LLP
Date Built
Wood Street and London Wall
The architects describe this building as, “three linked blocks of office accommodation that step up from eight storeys on Wood Street, ... to fourteen and finally eighteen storeys to the west.”  The building was located on the site of a former 1920’s telephone exchange and makes use of the extensive basement for plant allowing the roof levels of the new building to be kept largely free.  Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners add that, “The office wings are constructed of in-situ concrete which contrasts with the lightweight, steel-framed service towers containing toilets, lifts and dramatic, fully glazed stairs. The use of brilliant colour enhances their impact - air intakes and extracts at street level are also brightly coloured, contrasting with the neutrality of the occupied floors.”
