The new European headquarters for Bloomberg in London has been awarded best New Building in RIBA’s 2018 Stirling prize. A fantastic achievement for a stunning building. Cadeby Stone is immensely proud to have been part of this iconic building. The works at Cadeby along with Stancliffe’s now closed production facility manufactured the Derbyshire sandstone for the façade. Grants of Shoreditch installed the stone which is the largest sandstone building ever built in the Capital.
The Bloomberg Building designed by Fosters+Partner Architects consists of two buildings, connected by a retail site under glazed walkways. These walkways reinstate an historic route that once connected Cannon Street with Watling Street. The building is ten-floors with a two-storey colonnaded base, six office floors and two levels set back at the top. The solid facade combines buff Stanton Moor Sandstone and bronze blades.
