Cannon Green is a largescale, mixed-use office building executed for client Ocubis, located on Bush Lane in the City of London. The project saw the transformation of what was formerly Princess House, a rent-slab office, into a new workplace concept in the heart of the square mile.
Spanning 10,700m2, the Cannon Green project employed a range of specialist design teams for each of the scheme’s component areas. JRA was responsible for the dramatically remodelled reception situated in a bespoke double height glazed podium, sweeping around the base of the main tower. This houses a contemporary welcome area, original artwork and a number of relaxed lounge spaces centred around the grand concrete staircase, which was cast in situ. In addition, the space is occupied by The Listing, a Drake and Morgan concept restaurant and bar with terrace, and entrances to the Gym Box gym and bike club. The changes offer an impressive approach whilst adding scale to the building reception. Above this, Cannon Green offers 7,500m2 of Grade A office space in a re-clad bronze façade with new, more efficient glazing and a shared workspace with a private café and bar.
The scheme achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating due to a number of environmental interventions including the upgraded glazing, cyclist facilities and roof terrace with planting. JRA’s interventions have ensured that the building is fully accessible and provides a striking addition to the City’s boutique office market.
