A new building at Buckingham Gate in London has been designed to achieve an optimum energy balance 

Aukett Swanke have completed a landmark development in Victoria, London at 62 Buckingham Gate.

The building envelope is composed of a series of folding planes that either tilt forward or fold backward to respond to the contextual demands of the site and create more intimately scaled building volumes. Designed to achieve an optimum energy balance, the facade incorporates high performance solar control glass delivering a high light transmission whilst minimising heat gain.

Buckingham Gate has light-filled, highly efficient floorplates and by virtue of its island site, many of the floors have far-reaching views over London.

The building has impressive entrances to the office space together with a public amenity space, a superior retail environment, and restaurants under a coloured glass canopy. 

With circa 38,000 sq m of office and retail space this 12 storey building provides a light, airy working environment.

62 Buckingham Gate was conceived by architects Pelli Clarke Pelli, with Swanke Hayden Connell as executive architects, and interior designed by Lehman Smith McLeish (LSM). Their brief was to create a unique, sustainable building that reflected Land Securities’ ongoing transformation of Victoria.

In addition, the building has been rated BREEAM Excellent.
