This landmark headquarters for fashion company Monsoon Accessorize is a 15,000 sqm seven-level atrium building which can accommodate, in addition to offices and design studios several full size mock ups of the Monsoon shops. The Yellow Building is an environmentally smart, thermally massive, structurally light building that suggests the office of the future can be as delightful to work in as the factories of the past are to re-inhabit.

Date built: 2006
Design: Haworth Tompkins
A RIBA Awards 2007 winner
Address: 66 The Cut, London SE1 8LZ
Phone: 020 7922 2922
The Young Vic is a theatre on the Cut, located near the South Bank, in the London Borough of Lambeth. David Lan has been the theatre’s artistic director since 2000. Its philosophy is to “produce great plays for great audiences now and in the future”.
In the period after World War II a Young Vic Company was formed in 1946 by director George Devine as an offshoot of the Old Vic Theatre School for the purpose of performing classic plays for audiences aged nine to fifteen.
This was discontinued in 1948 when Devine and the entire faculty resigned from the Old Vic, but in 1969 Frank Dunlop became founder-director of The Young Vic theatre with his free adaptation of Molière’s The Cheats of Scapin, presented at the new venue as a National Theatre production, opening on 11 September 1970 and starring Jim Dale in the title role with designs by Carl Toms (decor) and Maria Bjornson (costumes).
Initially part of the National Theatre, the Young Vic Theatre became an independent body in 1974.
