It's horrible, but will make a splendid addition to all the other ugly 21st Century buildings which are clutter London's skyline


Kings Reach Tower in central London designed in the early 1970s by Richard Seifert is to be redeveloped. Make Architects new design increases office accommodation by 40% and the existing tower will be raised by four floors. New cladding will allow improved environmental control. The lower office building will be replaced by a cluster of smaller towers, of 6 to 12 storeys in height. The development will provide a vastly improved public realm. Automated opening panels will significantly reduce the energy consumption of the development. The cluster massing makes a positive contribution to the river frontage to the north and Stamford Street to the south by day and by night.
