About 20 Fenchurch Street
20 Fenchurch Street was designed in 2004 by Rafael Viñoly, the world-renowned Uruguayan architect based in New York City. With his distinctive design, it is stunning on a purely aesthetic level. Without increasing the building’s footprint, Viñoly has successfully turned the idea that buildings having to be smaller at the top on its head.
Putting in an urban experience at the top makes it all the more remarkable.
EXPERIENCE THE BUILDING
This is no ordinary business address. Never has a London building offered a more compelling space to work, visit and enjoy. Designed for maximum efficiency, expansive views are showcased from every floor whilst innovative double-deck lifts increase capacity – with a dedicated Sky Garden express lift.
Known locally as the Walkie-Talkie, the 38-storey building is the fifth tallest completed building in the City of London. It provides 690,000 sq foot of office space with floorplates that get larger in size as the floors go up, occupied by some of the world’s leading-edge businesses, at a landmark address for London.
