1 Undershaft (Aviva Tower)

St. Helen's Tower, 1 Undershaft, London, 2016.

Insurance giant Aviva recently commissioned London and Frankfurt based architectural practice TTSP to revitalise the ground-floor portion of their 1960's headquarters. The 28-storey tower, which was originally designed by Gollins Melvin Ward Partnership sits in a prominent location amid the City of London's cluster of financial skyscrapers and mid-rise office blocks.

The new spacious entrance and lobby area is filled with digital screens and LED backed panels which project news and financial data to those on both the inside and out.

The architectural photographs I took of the site were commissioned by glazing specialist OAG and focus on the revolving-doors, illuminated panels and the enormous 7.6 metre high glass fins which cover the expanse of the first and second floors.
