Belgrave House

Belgrave House responds to the challenge of a large scale office building with a solution of diagrammatic clarity. Providing 25,000m2 of office space over six floors, the building employs a flexible arrangement designed to satisfy the needs of high profile tenants including Google and British Airways.


Large enough to be used as open dealer floors, each level can also be split easily along both axes to accommodate four separate companies. Occupiers enjoy two open ‘lungs’ of space: a double storey entrance hall and, on the fifth floor, an open terrace and winter garden.


A fully glazed double height entrance is directly linked to Buckingham Palace Road by a Martin McGinn artwork that extends through the glazing on to the street. A large rooftop pavilion above the entrance visually reduces the apparent length of the 110m façade, reinforced by walls that extend deep into the plan, suggesting three separate buildings rather than one.
