The much larger horseshoe-shaped eastern block, standing 11 storey’s high, encircles a publicly accessible courtyard comprising 27% of the site’s area. It provides 37,625 m² of office space with by far the largest floor plates of any office block in the West End of London, with 4,000 m² on all but the top two floors. The block is irregularly shaped with recesses, projections and roof terraces intended to make it look more interesting and to break up its bulk.
