RIBA London Regional Award Winner 2018
R7 King’s Cross, our mixed use workplace scheme for Argent, was last night recognised with an RIBA London Regional Award.
In its citation, the jury observed that “It is a testament to the architect’s attention to detail and drive to make this project something very special and original.”
R7 is a highly flexible mixed-use office building, located in the heart of Argent’s King’s Cross development. It aims to provide both a friendly and welcoming environment with a variety of supporting spaces such as a restaurant, cinemas, terraces and balconies. The design represents a high quality, mixed-use development that will make a significant and positive contribution to the public realm, in character, hierarchy and scale.
The location of R7 gives it the potential to be the centre-piece of a properly functioning mixed-use quarter within the northern part of KXC. The ground floor spaces have been designed specifically to engage with and connect seamlessly the surrounding buildings and public realm rather than only serve a large corporate office space.
“The architect’s awareness to prioritise spend where it matters is evident in the design quality of the public spaces and amenities – money spent wisely.”
