The new European headquarters of Bloomberg, inaugurated in late 2017, has won the RIBA Stirling prize for architecture.
The Royal Institute of British Architects gives out the award each year to the UK’s best new building.
The building, which is in Bank, is the world’s most sustainable office and largest stone building in the City of London.
It features the latest construction technologies across two buildings, connected via a bridge, sitting either side of a new public arcade (pictured).
Inside, the buildings incorporate dynamic, open-plan interiors designed to encourage productive and collaborative working.
Stanislas Boivin-Champeaux from Sound Directions comments, ‘Sound Directions is delighted to have been involved in designing sound-masking solutions for the open-plan offices and meeting rooms at Bloomberg, creating system designs that facilitate multitudes of separate audio zones of sound masking across all eight floors, to create privacy, reduce distractions and encourage productivity’.
‘We congratulate all parties involved in working together to produce such a stunning outcome for this amazing new building’.
The buildings were designed by Foster + Partners and the full story can be read here on the BBC news website;
