Following the successful completion of the Watermark Place (now One Angel Lane) base building works the new tenant Nomura required specific adaptations. These include a new 216 seat auditorium inserted between floors, infills to atriums, new bridges across the main atrium, adaptations to the building envelope to suit the specific requirements within, and new taxi/chauffer drop of points outside and within the building.
The aim of the design was to create a flexible and functional approach to the new auditorium. Enhancements to the circulation were incorporated to form a natural progression through the existing building. Rooms were transformed into spill-out spaces to cope with various demands before and after presentations. Ancillary spaces and amenities cater for various usage scenarios. The auditorium itself is a sculptural pod within the existing fabric.
