The London Ark, Hammersmith

The London Ark stands on a triangular site defined by the A4 Hammersmith flyover and the adjacent underground cutting that carries the Piccadilly and District lines. In such a harsh environment the building was designed to take a defensive stance, forming an internal ‘oasis’ in the shape of a full-height atrium. R.H. Jackson and B. Leidner
