AHMM to design Google's King's Cross headquarters
Internet giant Google has reportedly hired AHMM to design its new UK headquarters close to King’s Cross station in London
Google has signed a deal for the land - which is part of developer Argent’s 27 hectare Kings Cross redevelopment project - last week and has appointed AHMM to design its new 67,350m² base, reported the Evening Standard.
The scheme will consist of five office buildings in the south-east corner of the masterplan, close to John McAslan + Partners new King’s Cross station ticket hall. Art school Central St Martins opened a new campus at King’s Cross last year and BNP Paribas and Camden Council are planning buildings there.
Google will be leaving its present location at 123 Buckingham Palace Road in 2016.
Argent declined to comment.
