Other Information

  • Watermark Place is the replacement for Mondial House, a former British Telecom Headquarters. Watermark Place actually reuses 31% of the basement of Mondial House.
  • To reduce the risk of flooding of the site, the entire building has been constructed on a raised plinth 5.2 metres above sea-level.
  • The plans will see a large new public space next to the River Thames opened up to access as part of the long term, but piecemeal plans, by the City of London to open up the entire bank of the Thames for people to walk along.
  • The pixelated facade has been created by taking a photograph of rippling water and running it through several Photoshop filters to create what the architect calls "a dot matrix interlayer" that will vary the appearance of the building as well as providing solar shading for the insides.
