Lumen办公楼,英国,Ryder Architecture

这个投机性的办公开发项目是通过为Legal and General公司赢得建筑竞赛而获得的,它由纽卡斯尔市议会租赁、管理和维护。该建筑是一个9,300平方米的NIA,底层为A1/A3用途,其设计使每层可以在需要时分成三个租户区。它的设计符合英国办公室协会的标准,每8平方米的NIA有一个人的占用率,并且符合英国建筑性能评估体系的优秀标准,EPC评级为A。

This speculative office development was secured through an architectural competition win for Legal and General, which is leased, managed, and maintained by Newcastle City Council. The building, a 9,300sqm NIA with A1 / A3 use on the ground floor, has been designed so that each floor can be split into three tenant domains if required. It is designed to British Council for Office standards with a ratio of occupancy of one person per 8sqm NIA, and to BREEAM Excellent with an EPC rating of A.


This was the first significant A-grade office building to be built in Newcastle city centre since the mid-1990s and provides a modern workspace for over 1,200 people in the science, technology, and knowledge-based sectors.


Vehicular access, disabled parking, and drop-off are incorporated into the adjacent public realm. There is a generous double-height shared reception and touchdown space along with a café, all of which have direct access to the public realm. A triple-height A3 unit fronts St James Boulevard whilst plant, back of the house, and staff amenity spaces are carefully tucked into a basement so as to not compromise the active frontage on this key gateway site.


Through expressing the structure and the rigor of the function within we have achieved a well-articulated architectural expression with a high degree of transparency. Colours provide richness and depth – the earthy copper tones catch the sunlight giving the building a different character throughout the day, changing its look and feel and providing a dramatic addition to Newcastle’s skyline.


In 2016, Legal & General Capital, the investment arm of Legal & General Group, became the principal funding partner with Newcastle City Council and Newcastle University, to build and finance the Newcastle Helix development.


Newcastle Helix is one of the largest urban regeneration projects of its kind in the UK. The 24-acre science and technology hub on the former brewery site, located in Newcastle’s city centre provides accommodation for over 4,000 jobs, office and research space, and 450 homes.

该项目的目标是成为英国主要的科学研究和技术企业的中心,为纽卡斯尔的后代创造以知识为基础的就业机会,并将北方动力中心扩展到 “北方的北方”。

The aim of the development is to become a major UK hub for scientific research, and technology businesses, creating knowledge-based jobs for future generations in Newcastle and extending the Northern Powerhouse to “the North of the North”.
