A historic London establishment gets a signature look.
Millennium Bridge House (MBH) is a building poised for transformation. Located at the foot of the Millennium Bridge on axis between St. Paul’s cathedral and the Tate Modern, MBH is long overdue for a much needed refurbishment. The feasibility of this adaptive reuse project was established through an inside-out evaluation of the property. Priority was given to the optimization of the floor plan to both improve the organization and usability of the office spaces and to enhance visibility of retail and food and beverage destinations to the public. The new cladding of the building is designed to maximize daylight and views for the occupants, whilst establishing an ongoing evolution of the skyline along the historic Thames River that is contemporary and forward looking.
MBH Before Transformation
The adaptive reuse of the existing building would retain the existing structure and floor plates, with reconfiguration to the internal layout and facade to improve visibility and internal comfort of the occupants.
