70 St Mary’s Axe

70 St Mary’s Axe

Arranged over three basement levels and twenty-one floors above ground, 70 St Mary Axe’s distinctive, curvaceous form soars elegantly from the surrounding historic streets.

Foundry were appointed by developer Nuveen to deliver a striking lighting feature for the reception space. The lighting solution for the space includes lots of concealed light sources to counteract unwanted reflections on the expansive glass façade. Yet there’s one lighting element that takes centre stage, a fully custom designed Bocci chandelier that spans the seating area and which visitors feel as though they are walking through the installation.

In addition there are feature free standing lighting spread around the space creating pockets of warm  illumination and softening the concrete interior.
