KPF reboots Holborn Viaduct office scheme
Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) has finally revealed images of its 60 Holborn Viaduct scheme in central London
Put on hold by developer Favermead after securing planning permission in December 2007, the 20,000m project is the latest in a line of stalled office schemes, such as Richard Rogers’ Leadenhall skyscraper, to have been re-started in the City in recent months (see AJ 20.05.10).
The scheme, which features an undulating façade with twisted fins sitting in front of a glazed curtain wall, replaces the now demolished 1967 Bath House (pictured at bottom).
John Bushell, KPF’s principal in charge of the project said: ‘The scheme’s ‘return’ is a response to the current commercial office market in London, particularly the need for high specification, sustainable and flexible offices spaces which can be adapted to accommodate multiple tenants.’
