The British Council for Offices has announced 8 Finsbury Circus as the winner of the Best Commercial Workplace in their regional property awards for London and the South East of England.

8 Finsbury Circus was praised by the judges as a delightful new office building which maximises the development potential of a very difficult site, whist respecting the surrounding heritage. The judges noted that traditional materials have been cleverly used to create a contemporary piece of architecture that blends effortlessly with its historic neighbours on the circus, which they cited as a mark of an intelligent and carefully considered re-development.
