Oliver Ulmer from David Chipperfield Architects talks about the design of the building:
The building is designed by award winning David Chipperfield Architects
The quality of architecture reflects the important position of this building at the gateway of the development. The iron twisted columns reflect the Victorian heritage of the site.
The building is approximately 55,120 sq ft net over 8 floors. A typical floor is 7,050 sq ft net with 600 sq ft of south facing balconies. Shops and cafes will be housed at street level. A through-reception can be accessed either from the main entrance on Pancras Square or from King’s Boulevard.
Goods and services for this building are delivered below street level via a shared access route. The target completion date is Q4, 2013.
As with all the office buildings at King’s Cross, the very latest technology will reduce running costs for the occupiers and minimize environmental impact. The building will meet the BREEAM standard ‘Outstanding’ and will be linked to the site-wide district heating network. This network will provide 100% of the development’s heating and hot water needs.
The building is designed with both active chilled beams and opening windows so that it can be ventilated mechanically or naturally. Carbon emissions will be substantially lower than required.
