Lehman Brothers European Headquarters+ expand detail
1.5 million square feet / 135,000 square meters
The former Lehman Brothers European Headquarters (now occupied by Nomura) anchors the western edge of Jubilee Park, the heart of the Heron Quay development at Canary Wharf.
The massing of the 32-story tower is simple and elegant, with uncompromising strength and clarity. The exterior wall is a delicate interplay between a transparent glass wall surface and a tapestry of vertical and horizontal stainless steel elements, giving the wall its texture and formal order. The density of horizontal stainless steel elements increases toward the tower top in a crowning gesture.
