102-108 Phipp Street, London

Phipp Street is a mixed use four-storey building in EC2. It incorporates a basement over the whole footprint and uses a relatively new reinforced concrete floor system consisting of precast permanent formwork and void formers that results in around one third less concrete and 200 kg less CO2 per metre cubed of concrete displaced than a comparable solid slab. Driven by the proximity of neighbouring buildings and site location on a narrow crossroads, the facade has been carefully detailed to give varying depths using different brickwork and glazing support details. This results in a visual plinth at ground level that reduces in solidity further up the building which helps the structure fit visually into the densely packed surroundings.

Completed 2008.
