Mike’s Place

Bloomberg Place is a commercial development under construction in central London. The two wedged-shaped office buildings, linked by sky bridges, are designed by Foster + Partners, which is also responsible for the lumpy building next door. What is interesting about Bloomberg Place is its height: ten stories, since this part of the city has a fifty-meter height limit. Washingtonians, currently engaged in a debate over raising the long-time height limit in that city should take note.

    An interesting observation but the adjacent building is not only lumpy but pretty ugly and overwhelming despite being quite low. Just next door to the Bloomberg site is the new Rothschild Bank HQ bt Rem Kookhaas. This is worth looking at. Although the main building is quite low, it has a separate box hovering above the tower block.
