London Open House 2013

Lloyds of London  

This weekend saw London Open House 2013 and after trying to get to this for the last two years i was determined to get there this year and well as you can see i made it. I have to say i am glad i did. My first port of call was the Iconic Lloyds of London Building, which until today i had only ever photographed from outside. The inside is just as impressive.

Taken From Lloyds website:-

The internationally-renowned Lloyd’s building was designed by the architect Richard Rogers and took eight years to build. 33,510 cubic meters of concrete, 30,000 square metres of stainless steel cladding and 12,000 square metres of glass were used during the construction.

 

After this i then headed down to City Hall

55 Baker Street sits on the site of the former Marks and Spencers Headquarters. The building is split into a series of solidly designed stone-clad blocks and separated by sections of lattice-like glass with triangular forms. The building will contain 45,800 square metres of offices, 4,200 square metres of retail, 1,500 square metres of leisure and 2,300 square metres of residential. Typical office floor plans are over 6,000 square metres of space each
