Shortlisted in the UNBUILT category
55 brings together the ingredients that make the city a dynamic and exciting place to be. 
A permeable ‘exchange zone’ of cafés, shops, incubator and meeting spaces over six interlinked floors is topped with a new elevated public garden for the City. Above this, high-quality workspace is designed for a new generation of innovative fast-growth tech SMEs. 
The design builds upon the City's network of alleys and courtyards, opening up the ground-plane to re-establish historic pedestrian routes. An 80% increase in public realm is supported by night-time servicing via concealed vehicle lifts.
