Located in the heart of London, Bloomberg’s new European headquarters is designed to complement the surrounding buildings and create a natural extension of the city. At ten stories high, the new HQ building protects views of nearby St. Paul’s Cathedral and is in harmony with the heights of the neighboring structures.
The design, created by Foster + Partners, comprises two buildings. Glazed bridges connect the separate buildings across a retail arcade that bisects the site. This reinstates a historic route that once connected Cannon Street with Watling Street.
