The seven to ten storey 7 More London Riverside building for PricewaterhouseCoopers completes the redevelopment of this Southwark quarter.

In order to reduce its massing and to get daylight into the necessarily deep floorplates the architects have opted for symmetrical wings that open towards the river, with bridges at three levels connecting the wings. External louvres project light and colour into the building and the outer glazed skin sparkles.

Inside the triple-height atrium commissioned art pieces and the configuration of lifts and bridges mirror the well-landscaped external life of More London. The building incorporates both a green and a rubble-roof to simulate a habitat that attracted birds during wartime London.

This is the first office building in the UK to recieve a BREEAM 'Outstanding' rating.
