R7, Kings cross

R7 is a highly flexible mixed use inner city office building, located at the heart of Argent’s King’s Cross development. It aims to combine both a friendly and welcoming environment with a variety of supporting spaces such as a restaurant, cinema, terraces and balconies.

The design represents a high quality, mixed use development that makes a significant and positive contribution to the public realm, in character, hierarchy and scale, whilst also creating a harmonious whole between the new and the old. An understanding of the urban context and design framework strongly guided our thinking in developing the design. The location of Building R7 gave it the potential to be the centrepiece of a properly functioning mixed-use cultural quarter within the northern part of KXC. The ground floor spaces have been designed specifically to engage and connect seamlessly with the surrounding buildings and public realm, rather than only serve a large corporate office space.
