8 Bishopsgate – Taking Sustainability to Scale in The City

Maximising development area by form finding collaborative approach at the earliest stage of the project and arranging the massing around lean component building blocks to develop conceptually efficient form

With the early focus of carbon reduction, a ‘total architecture’ approach with the use of innovative software and façade technology, a smart active façade making it UK’s tallest BREEAM Outstand building with façade playing key part

Utilising a lean façade system that adapts to the solar conditions, overshadowing from current and future buildings, limiting solar gains to high performance LETI requirements and maximise daylighting and views out of the building ensuring occupant comfort and wellness

The lean design, with a mission statement of ‘less is more’ in terms of material within the façade was only possible with the selection of an optimised smart active system
