Bloomberg Headquarters, LondonOffices
Winner of two British Council for offices Awards 2002 – Fit-out of workplace (major projects) London Regional Award and Fit-out of workplace National Award. Bloomberg offices housed in City Gate House, London, expanded into the next-door building, 50 Finsbury Square, originally designed by Foster and Partners. Powel Tuck Associates won a limited competition to join the two buildings together and completely restructure both buildings.
dpa worked closely with the client, design and construction teams to help achieve this award winning scheme. The project included relocation of the main entrance to the first floor where the new ‘Pantry’, or staff canteen, is located. The two buildings are linked together on each floor and most dramatically by a stair cascading down from the Pantry to the auditorium located at lower ground floor level in 50 Finsbury Square.
