280 High Holborn
GMW has just completed a new mixed-use building on High Holborn in London for developer Hines. Externally ‘280’ presents an elegant addition to the busy street. Inside the building the main focus, and the architects’ inspiration, is the continuous view of gentle, dignified Lincoln’s Inn Fields to the south. The 7 storey 64,000 sq. ft. development includes offices, a self-contained residential complex, and a ground floor retail unit.

The design of the terminal, together with its underground rapid-transit rail station and neighbouring car park, was inspired by a desire for simple and instinctive passenger routes between land side and the aircraft.
