Morris+Company include purpose-designed outdoor terraces in mixed-use building

The design of the building really considers what people want in a contemporary office today, including huge outdoor areas, lots of retail space and a genuinely adaptable office environment.
– John Mulryan

Occupants of Ballymore's EG:HQ mixed-use building, designed by Morris+Company, will have access to 18,000sq ft (1,700sq m) of outdoor amenity space, including six purpose-designed private open-air terraces.

Situated in the developing Nine Elms area of London and overlooking the River Thames, the building has been designed to meet the demands of modern businesses.

John Mulryan, group managing director of Ballymore, said: "The design of the building really considers what people want in a contemporary office today, including huge outdoor areas, lots of retail space and a genuinely adaptable office environment."

Each of the terraces has been designed for a different specific use and all have views of the river.

They include a 9,000sq ft (840sq m) communal terrace for general gatherings and events and terraces designed for yoga classes, outdoor meetings and break-out sessions.

The 13-storey building will also have 330 cycle spaces and a cycle workshop to encourage sustainable travel.

There will be 217,000sq ft (20,000sq m) of flexible office and commercial space in total, including over 5,000sq ft (470sq m) of ground-floor retail and restaurant space.

Ballymore was granted planning permission for the EG:HQ building last week and it is due to be complete in 2022.
