Another place discovered at Open House London.
30 Crown Place is a bit hidden in the area as there are plenty of higher buildings around in the City.
It is a sixteen storey glass office building (on one side only, on other side fourteen) with three terraces between with London view. The form of the building is unusual, like big elephant and a small elephant as described by our guide. The building was also seen on TV series “Spooks” and James Bond.
Great experience and the terrace with a massive BBQ .. wow
In front of the building they were few guys with skateboards jumping over concrete benches.
Design facts:The curved pixilated facades are designed to ‘float’ off the volumetric form of the building emphasising its form and surface rather than floors. The projecting feathered ends of the curved over-sailing ‘screen’ facades make an unusual but successful transition between earth, building and sky.
