KPF say of this building that it features, "... a distinctive origami of fins, introduces a lively, dynamic environment to Holborn Viaduct, creating an architectural focus on the Farringdon/Holborn axis.  Responding to its urban context, the simple, organic form of the building softens the mass of the development. The skin is a series of curves influencing and influenced by views and sightlines to and from the site’s city location. The striking façade of twisting fins over a light glazed curtain wall gives a strong visual identity to the scheme.  .... The new building achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating in recognition of its energy efficiency."
