About 110 Bishopgate

As with any significant tall building project in the City of London, Heron Tower overcame many obstacles on its way to realization. Ten years in the making, the project finds itself well fit into its urban landscape and brings new vitality to the city. It is sophisticated in its form and use of materials. The use of three-story "villages" (beautifully expressed on the facade) centered around atriums breaks up the isolated stratification of individual floors common in tall office buildings, to bring an inter-floor engagement and interaction.
