Project Details Project Intro

The refurbishment and extension of the existing building includes 90,000 sq ft of contemporary workspace along with:

  • 4,500 SQ FT biodiverse green roof with city views.
  • Ceiling heights up to 5.6 meters.
  • A BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.
  • Electric charging points.
  • The greenery of Clapham Common and Battersea Park is only a short walk away.


The bespoke planter finish was one of the reasons Logic was commissioned—the large open space of the roof terrace provides an extensive social space, offset by the planter edging, which houses the biodiverse greenery.  Integrated Modal benches were also used on the roof terrace to break up the large sections of planting and provide a relaxing retreat.
