The Monument Building

This commercial building located next to the London Monument features nine floors of Grade A office space, plus ground-floor retail and office provision and a roof terrace. Make has reshaped the site’s building lines to create an improved Monument Yard, and used complex parametric computer modelling to design a distinctive south facade. This frontage comprises a full-height curtain of vertical twisted metal ribbons that play on the gilded ‘flames’ crowning the Monument and offer solar shading and interesting vistas into the new building.
