280 High Holborn, London
HEDF for Hines UK
Located in the West End, this £23m mixed-use development for Hines UK provides an attractive contemporary building that enhances its urban setting of the contrasting environments of contemporary High Holborn and historic Lincoln's Inn Fields. The eight-story development consists of a 9,595 sq m office building entered from High Holborn, where there is also a ground-level retail unit, and six south-facing apartments overlooking Whetstone Park and Lincoln's Inn Fields. Designed to the highest sustainability and energy requirements, the building responds to its immediate neighbours both at street level with the opening up of Great Turnstile and at upper levels with its articulated profile.
