jean nouvel: one new change project

a new route from cheapside to new change is open to the sky and orientated to create a new view of st paul’s cathedral framed by the building. this ‘slot’ extends to the central pedestrian crossing culminating in an atrium rising through the full height of the building and containing a public artwork installation.   the central atrium also provides access to the roof where a restaurant and café facilities with public terrace provide extensive views of the cathedral and london skyline.   above the retail accommodation, the building has five floors of offices, arranged around four cores. the building is serviced at basement level with vehicular access via a ramp off bread street. the design delivers 10% of the building’s energy needs from renewable sources on site in line with the mayor of london guidelines for major developments.
