In this video produced by Dezeen for TP Bennett, the architecture firm explains how its design for a new office building in London’s Square Mile "sets a new benchmark" for the area.
Called EightyFen, the mixed-use office building features a limestone facade punctuated by an irregular pattern of projecting and recessing windows and was developed by YardNine and Partners Group.
"It was conceived as a refreshing alternative to the more traditional city towers and TP Bennett understood this vision from the outset," director of YardNine Maxwell Shand said in the video.
"We’re always striving to create the best possible environment for everyone who interacts with our buildings," he added.
The developers commissioned British architecture firm TP Bennett for the design of the building.
"I believe EightyFen sets a new benchmark for this part of the city," Bill Soper, principal director of the firm, said.
