London, United Kingdom
Riverside House is a standalone mixed-use office building bounded by the Thames Path, Southwark Bridge Road, and Bear Gardens Conservation Area. Boasting a prime river location within close proximity to the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, and many of London’s busiest transport hubs, Riverside House offers excellent views across the Thames to St. Paul’s, The London Eye, and Westminster.
Repositioning the existing building required careful consideration of the site’s contextual constraints and complexities to ensure longstanding improvements for current and future users. Working closely with the client to strategically address the building’s existing issues, Gensler proposed a unique design response to create an amenity-rich environment that supports an integrated work/life experience, which in turn, attracts top talent for anchor tenants without having to build anew.
