Bloomberg London Place, European Headquarters by Foster + Partners
Credited as the world’s most sustainable office here’s Bloomberg London, European headquarters, by Foster + Partners.
For this reason this large office building is a monumental achievement. Designed by Foster + Partners and constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine is thought to be the largest stone building in the City of London since St. Paul Cathedral.
House of all Bloombergs employees
I approached this architecture with the greatest interest because I read a lot about it. Above all Bloomberg London Place houses all the Bloombergs employees under one roof for the first time. An expression of confidence in British architecture.
For this reason I focused my attention on the several uniques features of this building. At the ground level there are Commercial activities and bridges connects the 2 separate buildings. An undulation is in plan as an expression of the movement around the building therefore I took some pictures of this effect.
Bloomberg London Place: RIBA London award 2018 winner
The Royal Institute of British Architects, RIBA, has awarded in 2018 Bloomberg London Place as one of the UK’s best new buildings. A very high quality mark the whole complex, inside and out.
Externally Bloomberg place aims to create a dialogue with the old neighbouring buildings, consequently the designers chose to build it at an appropriate scale to the surroundings.
By carving the buildings into two blocks part of an old roman road called Watling Street has been reinstated.
The museum inside Bloomberg Place reinforce the connection with the roman history of the City of London; this displays the Roman Temple of Mithras discovered on the site sixty years ago.
The architectural pictures presented here focus their attention on the development made by the architects. Most importantly I focused my attention on her specific features of the building and the area.
Here’s a link to my architecture photography portfolio.
