Moorplace Moorgate Exchange

The design of Moor Place, formerly known as Moorgate Exchange, assigned to the International architectural firm HKR Architects, complies with the constraints of the surrounding buildings in the City and its location offers a strategic view of St Paul Cathedral.

The result of this ambitious project is an iconic 32,000 m2 office building, with spectacular green terraced roof garden tiers. Designed for important companies working in the City, the building has a huge open space on the ground floor and narrows on the Barbican side, creating a series of stepped roof gardens. The cantilever structure, which seems to “float” on the ground-floor massive V columns, is placed over the Crossrail tunnel.

The façades have been designed to fully exploit their orientation and thus to increase the energy efficiency whilst creating a building that feels light and transparent. The construction saves up to 30% of energy and reduces CO2 emissions by 20%.
The Office Building Moor Place, formerly Moorgate Exchange, has been certified BREEAM “Excellent” and LEED Core & Shell “Platinum”.

The façades of ground floor are covered with a system of mullions and transoms and horizontal aluminium brise-soleil, while those of upper floors are made up of a SSG unitised system with glass fins.
The aluminium components have been coated by Decoral® Group with Champagne C31 Class 2 powder.
