Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners unwraps huge Chiswick office

  • 1 Comment

Work has finished on this 31,000m² block in Chiswick Park by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) - one of the largest speculative office buildings to be completed in London this year

Known as Building Seven, the 12-storey structure is the last of 12 buildings ‘arranged as a necklace around a two-tier lake’ on the 33-acre business park in west London which was also masterplanned by the practice.

Richard Paul, partner at RSHP said: ‘Building Seven forms the culmination of fifteen years of work by [us] in the formation of Chiswick Park. Coupled with the vision of Stanhope and Blackstone we were able to create a unique sense of place and community around a new urban landscape.

The buildings have evolved

‘Over several phases the buildings have evolved and kept abreast of changing environmental standards and tenants requirements, keeping Chiswick Park at the forefront of business park design.

‘The ethos of Enjoy-Work the Park has strengthened the sense of community by establishing a people oriented public realm , where cars are restricted to the perimeter of the development thus enabling the tenant interaction with their environment to thrive.’

Ed Hodgson from Blackstone, asset managers of the park, said: ‘We’re proud to have completed the final piece of the jigsaw of one of London’s most innovative and admired business destinations. 

‘Now Building 7 is open for business, we’re looking forward to beginning the marketing drive in earnest, and we’re confident of securing our first lettings very soon.’
