Overview

Citicape House is an office building at 61-65 Holborn Viaduct, London EC1.

New Hotel
The existing office building is demolished to make way for a 382-bedroom hotel featuring the vertical landscaping designed by Sheppard Robson.

Amenities
The building will contain 40,000 sq ft of workspace, a sky-bar on the tenth floor, meeting and events space, spa and ground level restaurant and co-working space.

Living Wall
The hotel will have a 40,000 square feet living wall within the façade, which will annually capture over 8 tonnes of carbon, produce 6 tonnes of oxygen, and lower the local temperature by 3-5 degrees Celsius. The wall will significantly contribute towards improving local air quality, by trapping approximately 500kg of particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) per year.
