Stratford City will become a major new destination in east London and with its superb transport links it will be within easy reach of central London and now mainland Europe. The inclusion of high-quality office buildings will give the new development the mix of uses that make a successful urban centre.
The proposed buildings are sited at three key points of entry, directly facing the new Stratford International Station, next to the new public transport interchange and facing the principal route that connects to the rest of the site. All three buildings share the same architectural language, with floor plates appearing as stacked volumes randomly set on top of each other. These offsets are achieved through a series of cantilevers that reduce the perceived mass of the buildings with full-height reflective glazing.
Each office is distinguished by its metallic finish, reflecting the sky and obscuring the interior. Highly visible soffits and roofs are finished in panels of contrasting colours that reinforce the formal abstraction.
"Westfield Design has enjoyed a very successful and productive collaboration with Fletcher Priest on the Stratford City project, where FPA's unique brand of creativity and pragmatic realism can be combined to raise the quality of the architectural proposition."
Simon Cochrane, Concept Director, Westfield
