An architectural landmark for Paddington, the Brunel Building provides a striking new addition to the regeneration and vibrancy of the area.
This new building is located directly adjacent to the Grand Union Canal in Paddington, giving the public access to a new tree-lined towpath linking the Basin with Little Venice for the first time in more than 200 years.
Designed by architects Fletcher Priest, the building provides 237,700 sq ft of offices and 5,500 sq ft of restaurant space over 16 storeys, comprising 15 storeys of workspace, two roof gardens and basement levels. 286 cycle spaces, lockers and 26 showers are also provided.
An extensive range of sustainability measures were incorporated into the design including 3.5m high floor-to-ceiling heights to maximise natural light and geothermal heating and cooling with two 180m-deep boreholes accessing the substrata aquifer. The heating and cooling supplied is 100% renewable.
