The Building Design Partnership (BDP) has recently completed a major £30 million upgrade to the principal office building and public realm at Thomas More Square in London.
Thomas More Square is a commercial development built originally in the 1980’s. It consists of a number of office buildings near St Katherine’s dock, and is connected by a large area of public space linking adjacent residential buildings with retail and public amenity.
The main reception area has been completely remodelled, and now incorporates a new double height stainless steel entrance portico, large reception with feature audio visual system, business lounge and coffee shop.
The upper office floors have also been refurbished to create grade A commercial space with brand new facilities throughout the building.
Externally the public realm has been remodelled to include new access routes, raised levels, planting, seating and lighting. A new client brand for the development was adopted for inclusion in a new signing scheme too.
An interdisciplinary team from BDP, including landscape, interior and graphic design, lighting and architecture, was commissioned by Land Securities to work on the project.
