Norman Foster’s Swiss Re Building will soon have a new neighbor! London-based practice Fletcher Priest Architects have designed a 16-story tower that will replace the existing, outdated 1980s office building. Now under construction, the new 230,000 square-foot office building at 6 Bevis Marks will reuse 50% of the original structure and be 80% more energy efficient than the current building.

The scheme reclaims an unused service area space on the ground level and transforms it into a new public plaza, doubling the current public space and enhancing important pedestrian routes through and around the site. Stepped volumes create 10,000 square-feet of private outdoor roof terraces. Cantilevered, south facing balconies protect the interior form solar gain, while overlooking the new plaza below, as wall-to-wall depths are optimized to achieve maximum daylight penetration.

The building will embody a distinctive green tint from the recycled glass façade that contrasts the clear transparency of the low iron windows.

An all-weather, open air roof garden is extended by a light ETFT-clad structure, allowing all occupants to enjoy the stunning city views.
