160 Great Portland Street, a clever refurbishment for Great Portland Estates, won the award for Best Corporate Workplace at the London and South East Region BCO Awards lunch on Tuesday.
The building comprehensively reworked with a new atrium, clad in Iroko spandrel panels which add materiality and warmth, providing a new heart to the building and bringing daylighting to the office floors. The design, initially developed for multi-tenant fit-out, were reviewed and enhanced when FX specialists Double Negative came on board a single tenant. The judges praised the ‘great lengths’ to which the team went ‘to tailor the redevelopment to provide a building which suits perfectly the tenant’s business’.
The building will go on to be considered for the national awards later in the year.
