Design team named for Olympic International Quarter



BDP, Gensler, Pringle Brandon Drew, TP Bennett and Woods Bagot have been chosen to design the new £1.3 billion commercial district on the edge of the Olympic Park in Stratford City.

Backed by a joint venture between Lend Lease and London & Continental Railways, the International Quarter (TIQ) project will be one of the UK’s largest mixed-use developments and will include 370,000m² of office space, a new hotel and 350 homes.

The developers launched the search for architects on the project, hailed as a ‘new commercial district for London’, last year (AJ 21.07.2011).

Mark Dickinson, managing director development of EMEA, Lend Lease: ‘There is no other site in London like TIQ where an occupier can create a completely bespoke office building, tailored exactly to their business needs. The quarter will create work environments that motivate and empower employees. Expect something innovative and refreshing.’

Christopher Bennie, principal director at TP Bennett, said: ‘We have the opportunity to create a new generation of sustainable office buildings, designed to be thermally and spatially efficient, yet sufficiently flexible to attract a range of occupiers and accommodate their changing needs over time. By looking to the future and challenging orthodoxies, TIQ can become an exemplar with a strong sense of place, attractive in which to live and work”.

Earle Arney, global director of workplace at Woods Bagot, said: ‘The International Quarter will be a game-changer; not just for London but for Europe. TIQ gives London the opportunity to step-ahead of many world cities by providing an innovative workplace that is designed from the inside out.’

Outline planning consent has already been secured for the scheme around the Westfeld shopping centre and construction is expected to start after the Games, in early 2013, when the site will be handed over by Olympic Delivery Authority.

The first offices are expected to complete in 2015.

It looks decent but looks like built with '80s decade technology. It lacks "zing" to it. Its passable.
