AHMM, Yellow Building

»Yellow Building« in London

Celebrating the structure – Simon Allford (AHMM architects) explains the concept behind the design of the »Yellow Building«, which is the new headquartes of a British clothing brand.

An impressive atrium extending the full height of the building with a striking concrete structural framework: these are the hallmarks of the Yellow Building in White City, west of central London. In order to provide bracing to the stacked levels, the architects and structural engineers developed a concrete diagonal structure along the perimeter of the facade and atrium. Primarily in the central atrium, the identity of the building is marked by the distinctive and economical structural system.
