Cardinal House

Cardinal House is a new office development over the Cowcross Street entrance to the Crossrail Farringdon Station. The building comprises 6 floors of commercial office space with a double height entrance and landscaped roof terrace. Environmental features include photovoltaic cells and thermal piles for heating and cooling. JRA’s “contextual modernist” approach has informed the designs which utilise a palette of materials including faience, terracotta and anodised aluminium that will give the building a clear, contemporary identity and fit with the mixed range of neighbours.
