Two Southbank Place

Two Southbank Place is a highly glazed new-build office, designed by KPF Architects for developer Canary Wharf Contractors Limited (CWCL) in a Joint Venture with Qatari Diar.
A key architectural feature of the building is the wedge-shaped, double storey volumes created on the north-west corner of the massing, which are delivered in large 3m wide x storey height DGUs, fixed back to steel structure behind.

The building also includes large open terraces on the south elevation, giving good access from floorplates to external spaces and excellent views over the Thames

A glazed canopy connects the building to its Squire and Partners designed neighbour, One Southbank Place.

The cladding was executed in unitised curtain walling by Permasteelisa.  The façade units are storey height and small format, to enable vertical distribution in a normal hoist during construction.  The units comprise a vision glazed DGUs and a shadowbox spandrel panel between ceiling and FFL, giving the building its distinctive highly glazed aesthetic.

Completed in 2018, the project is located near Waterloo station, an iconic location on the south bank of the Thame and with its adjacent neighbour, the Squire and Partners design one Southbank Place, one of our first buildings for Canary Wharf Contractors Ltd, which has since grown to many other appointments.
