Brunel Building Launch – Wednesday 18th September 2019

The Architect

On Wednesday 19th September, The Property Chronicle attended the launch of the much anticipated Brunel Building, the latest building designed by Derwent London.

The Brunel Building is an architectural landmark for Paddington, providing a striking new addition to the regeneration and vibrancy of the area.

Providing high quality flexible office space with great natural light, column-free floors, rooftop terraces and a canalside setting.

Lettings have exceeded expectations, with the building fully pre-let ahead of completion to a vibrant mix of occupiers.

Improving the public realm around the building was central to the project’s objectives. For the first time since the Paddington Basin was opened more than 200 years ago, the public has access to a new, tree-lined canal towpath that links the Basin with Little Venice.

The Bakerloo line runs directly under the site. The diagrid design of Brunel Building’s exterior helps support the building over the two subterranean tunnels.
