New Outdoor and Communal Space
As well as providing an opening and welcoming reception, the new entrance offers an informal, collegiate space for communal working, which is integral to the design of 160 Old Street. To enhance our occupier experience we also designed outdoor space equivalent to four tennis courts arranged as a mix of courtyards and terraces on every upper floor and ensured the provision of natural light at every point of our occupiers’ journey from the entrance of the building to their desk.
Providing the Vision
As a multi-layered building with different types of space available over the basement, mezzanine, ground floor and upper floors, one of our challenges was to enable prospective occupiers appreciate the diverse areas being created within the development. To help them understand the complete range of options available we created a digital 3D environment using interactive gaming technology. This allowed potential occupiers to navigate virtually through the floors bringing the building to life.
Enhancing our Environment
We are delighted with our 160 Old Street’s excellent sustainability credentials with an ‘A’ Energy Performance Certificate Rating and a BREEAM Excellent rating. To reduce our impact on the environment, permanent timber used in the construction of the scheme was FSC compliant while 96% of all the construction waste was diverted from landfill. Photovoltaic panels have been installed to further reduce the carbon footprint of the building. To help with the health and wellbeing needs of our occupiers we have almost doubled the industry standard of cycle facilities with 258 cycle spaces, 201 lockers and 20 showers.
