Architect: Renzo Piano Building Work­shop with Flet­cher Priest Architects, London

The architecture of St. Giles Court in London is cha­racte­rised by refres­hingly colourful facades: with his red, yellow, orange and green glossy facades, the inter­na­tio­nally renowned architect Renzo Piano succeeded in enhancing the visual appearance of this dis­trict of the city. This ensemble, which is around 50 metres high, is parti­cularly also an example of the regene­ra­tion of urban space in the London's West End. Where demure office buildings typical of the 1950s could be found pre­viously, the architect desi­gned a colourful mixed-use ensemble: an 11-storey office building, for instance, was combined with a 15-storey apart­ment building, with the ground floor cafés and shops surrounding a newly created public square. The striking perfo­rated façades, structured by horizontal strips, hang in front of the glazed buildings like colourful mem­branes.
