New London Architecture

3 and 4 Brent Cross Town

Planning Granted

These sustainable offices by the new Brent Cross West station will provide flexible, open spaces to avoid siloed working and improve productivity and wellbeing, next to 50 acres of green space

The Brent Cross Town offices differ from a standard work environment. The buildings use leading timber construction technologies to provide a sustainable place to work in Brent Cross Town. The offices will bring together innovative companies, academic organisations, start-ups and scale-ups to create a new business ecosystem, located at the centre of a ‘golden triangle’ between the UK’s most powerful knowledge clusters – Euston’s Knowledge Quarter, Tech City at Old Street and the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.

The offices respond to new ways of working by providing expansive and flexible open spaces to avoid siloed working and improve productivity. 3 and 4 Brent Cross Town are located among restaurants, shops and leisure facilities and sit next to 50 acres of parks and outdoor space. All workstations are placed next to the east and west façades where daylight is higher, due to the distance of these façades to the neighbouring buildings in the masterplan. This maximisation of daylight, as well as use of warm materials, the promotion of stair usage and break-out areas for eating and socialising in will all contribute to the wellbeing of office users.

Design features include a timber floor structure, flexible open floor-plates leading onto balconies, and roof pavilions with large wraparound terraces.

The buildings sit on the western edge of Station Square, a public and transport interchange space next to the new Brent Cross West station – a 12-minute journey to King’s Cross St Pancras. With expansive double height receptions, the buildings offer easy access from the station entrance.

The offices will lie at the heart of Brent Cross Town – set to become a net-zero-carbon neighbourhood by 2030. 3 and 4 Brent Cross Town will provide a reliable and affordable zero-carbon heating network, with clean air and high indoor environmental quality.

At Brent Cross Town, we have set out to create a new workplace environment at the heart of our new park town. The focus, even pre-COVID19, was on the quality of life and how to support both the health and wellbeing of people and companies that choose to come – and the buildings' design is fundamental to that. The target we set the team was to create flourishing communities that have a sense of place and engagement and are connected to leading knowledge, whilst ensuring we also look to protecting the future of our environment in all senses.
