A revolution in the concept of office building

Intended to become an iconic office building in the heart of the City of London at 80 Fenchurch Street, this new construction will offer a rare alternative to City towers through the inclusion of six landscaped roof gardens.

80 Fenchurch Street will be a 14-storey comprising 240,000 sq ft (22,000 sq m) of grade A office accommodation and 12,250 sq ft (1,140 sq m) of retail space designed by TP Bennett architects. Its floorplates range from 5,000 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft NIA (Net Internal Area).
The building will benefit from the under planning Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) and its Liverpool Street station.

The project is assumed to achieve BREEAM excellent and the Wired Certified Platinum rating for connectivity from WiredScore.

TP Bennett

Founded in 1921 by Thomas Penberthy Bennett, it has rapidly grown into a leading architectural practice, having established a reputation for innovative design and technical excellence. TP Bennett believes that one solution rarely fits all. Their approach embraces diversity, allows individual expression and ensures that design solutions are environmentally responsive and appropriate to context, culture and climate. It is important for the practice to discuss sustainable issues with clients at the earliest possible opportunity in the design process. They work in a constant dialogue with every figure of the project: from clients to contractors and end-users. Open discussions and a ‘no-ego’ approach to design characterized their work. TP Bennett adopts a concept-led approach to design in order to ensure that the design DNA is preserved from feasibility through to completion. According to the architects, great design is about achieving a balance and tension between creativity and practicality and a smart problem solving attitude. In 2017 TP Bennett was ranked number 9 in the AJ 100 survey, the Architect’s Journal ranking of the largest architectural practices in the UK, measured by the number of qualified architects employed. Furthermore, seven buildings designed by this practice have achieved “Listed Building” status, signifying that they are of ‘special architectural or historic interest’ on the national register.
