A prime example of low carbon office design

76 Southbank, the former home of IBM, features over 300,000sq.ft of office space, situated on the Thames.

The Grade II listed commercial office building is being sensitively remodeled, refurbished and extended to transform it into a sustainable office space with extensive terracing overlooking the River Thames. Designed by AHMM, Multiplex will retain 80% of the existing structure, exemplifying low carbon office design and targeting BREEAM outstanding certification.

The development will offer flexible office spaces that promote productivity and comfort and help foster collaboration. Surrounded by 50,000 sq.ft of outdoor terraces, occupants will benefit from biophilic landscaping, enhancing the connection to nature. An additional floor will be incorporated into the building as well as extensions to existing office spaces to increase capacity for future tenants. Amenities such as cycle parking, showers and locker rooms will also be installed.

Bringing much needed office space to the local area, the project will also create 1,200 additional jobs for the community and wider London, contributing to the local economy.

The development is due for completion in Q4 2024.
