Corstorphine & Wright unveils innovative concave office

Back to News & Insights

By David Crosthwait – 3rd July 2024

We are delighted to announce the completion of ‘The Scoop’, a unique concave office building in Southwark, London.

The innovative design reuses an existing building and integrates a conical cut-out façade in white glazed bricks, creating a playful and novel response to the site’s context and neighbouring church.

Situated in the vibrant Union Street Conservation Area, the building stands as a testament to modern architecture while respecting the heritage of its surroundings, namely the adjacent Grade II listed Church of Most Precious Blood, whose circular window is now strikingly framed.

The design retains the significant southern-facing and corner return of the existing facade, blending it seamlessly with a new build extension. This detailed approach ensures a successful integration into the neighbourhood, adding to the area’s creative and artistic reputation.

Working closely with the forward-thinking, community minded building owners, ThomsonHillsBalfour Limited (THB), Corstorphine & Wright has created a truly unique building, which is captivating passers-by following its recent unveiling.
