Pilbrow & Partners were appointed at the start of 2019 to design the first London multi-tenant building to achieve BREEAM outstanding and WELL platinum accreditations.

P & P’s client is EDGE, a Holland-based developer with an international reputation for their pioneering work on sustainability and wellbeing. St Thomas Street will be EDGE’s first London Project. P & P were selected for the commission based on the practice’s experience of working with smart buildings and in-house capabilities for environmental analysis.

60-68 St Thomas Street will form a notable addition to the emerging tall building cluster around the Shard. The building is drawn to the edge of its site to form a new public park between St Thomas Street and Melior Street.

The building envelope has been designed to respond to the proposed surroundings and environmental conditions, enabling access to daylight whilst limiting unwanted heat loss in winter and reducing overheating in summer.

People feel (and work) better when in contact with nature. At EDGE, bold, vibrant and verdant landscaping is conceived as an integral part to the public realm. It extends from the street garden below into the base of the building. The new public park to the south and west of the building will be lush and green, increasing the site’s horticultural diversity and offering new green space in an area of landscape deficit.

The design of the building marries well-being and productivity with broader social and environmental sustainability goals. Its varied workspaces will support both established businesses and local start-ups. The building integrates EDGE’s pioneering research into smart technology and the ‘internet of things’ – Innovations that will resonate widely with the of the capital’s future architectural offering.
