4 Kingdom Street is a nine-storey office building located in Paddington Central, London. It is the first of two office buildings that architects Allies & Morrison have designed for British Land at their canal-side Paddington Central development.
The design takes cues from the building’s location on the site of a former railway goods yard, with hints of engineering history found in the structural details of the façades as well as within the interior. The building has a unitised curtain wall and the structural steel frame is exposed throughout.
Wintech delivered Façade Engineering Consultancy services. The client’s vision was to have a high quality sustainable development with the façades addressing all of the relevant architectural issues. 4 Kingdom Street has a BREEAM rating of “Excellent” and will be highly efficient in achieving energy use targets.
