Developer Edge has been given the go-ahead from Southwark Council to deliver a 27-storey smart office building on St Thomas Street in London’s South Bank
Designed in collaboration with architects, Pilbrow and Partners, Edge London Bridge will deliver a new, landscaped public park alongside the smart office building, connecting the base of the tower to the wider community.
The building’s façade is designed to celebrate the character of Bermondsey’s Victorian heritage, while the interior will boast Edge’s signature style – an abundance of daylight, fresh air, generous green terrace spaces with plants and shared facilities.
With wellness and connection at its core, Edge London Bridge will also offer its tenants a club space with a large outdoor terrace overlooking the city, a modern gym and a publicly accessible coffee bar on the ground floor.
Like all Edge developments, a combination of thoughtful design and smart technology will enhance the health, happiness and productivity of the building’s users.
Air quality, occupancy and energy efficiency will all be closely monitored and adjusted using Edge’s smart-technology platform.
With its sustainable design, the smart office building is set to achieve both BREEAM Outstanding certification and WELL Platinum.
‘Connect, create and work together’
Coen van Oostrom, founder & CEO at EDGE, said: “If people are to leave the comfort of their home offices, they need to be enticed back to spaces that have become clubhouses enabling them to connect, create and work together.
“Buildings such as EDGE London Bridge will lead the way, showing that the office of the future is already here.”
