Architect: Mos­ses­sian & Partners, London

A spec­ta­cular new building has been built on Mer­chant Square, not far from Hyde Park: this striking ensemble is composed of three acute-angle structures, perfectly composed by the London-based architect Michel Mos­ses­sian. Like huge prisms, the structures nestle toge­ther. The inge­nious vertical stepping of the red heart of the building increases its pro­mi­nence. It con­tains an atrium, which pro­duces a thril­ling spa­tial effect, extends through all storeys and is clearly defined as an open space. Impres­sive views of the city open up at many points behind the patch­work structure of the glass facades that reflect the water in the adjo­i­ning canal. Mer­chant Square stands out as a beacon of change in the architectu­rally-neg­lected area around Paddington Sta­tion.

GU solu­tions: facade ele­ments, parti­cularly the manu­ally-ope­rated Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting win­dows
