Bloom Clerkenwell

Built

JRA designed Bloom Clerkenwell, a new office building over Farringdon Crossrail station, comprising office accommodation, retail and landscaped roof terraces, with a focus on wellbeing throughout.

Bloom houses 18,100 sqm of office accommodation which focus on the wellness of the occupants and provides landscaped roof terraces, an in-house gym, end of trip facilities and amenity retail to all tenants. This new office building for HB Reavis over the Crossrail station at Farringdon West has outstanding links with the city and beyond. The use of red terracotta is a reference to the adjacent transport infrastructure with the faience and aluminium giving Bloom a contemporary identity. The project is on course to achieve WELL Platinum, BREEAM Outstanding and WiredScore Platinum ratings.
