Description of Citicape House

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 40,000ft2 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.

Submitted for Planning

Citiscape House hotel has been submitted for planning to the City of London, reports architect Sheppard Robson.

The proposed building will be a 382-key five-star hotel, featuring the vertical landscaping, as well as 40,000ft2 of workspace, a sky-bar on the tenth floor, meeting and events space, spa and ground level restaurant and co-working space.

By integrating 40,000 square feet of living wall within the façade, the building is projected to annually capture over eight tonnes of carbon, produce six tonnes of oxygen, and lower the local temperature by three to five degrees Celsius. The wall will also significantly contribute towards improving local air quality, by trapping approximately 500kg of particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) per year.

The project engages with the Urban Greening Policy set out in the GLA’s draft New London Plan, incorporating strategies to encourage more and better urban greening, while adopting measures for an ‘Urban Greening Factor.’ The projected Urban Greening Factor score of 1.37 exceeds requirements by 45 times and has the highest greening score in Greater London.

Dan Burr, Partner at Sheppard Robson, commented: “On a site that is so prominent, there was a real drive to inject some fresh perspectives on how to grapple with some on London’s most urgent environmental issues, including air quality and noise and dust pollution. Rather than having an isolated patch of greenery, we felt that an immersive and integrated approach would have the biggest impact on the local environmental conditions and making a better and more liveable city, as well as articulating a clear architectural statement.”
