8 Bishopsgate is a striking 50-storey tower located in the heart of London’s financial district. This iconic structure provides a spacious 570,000 square feet of prime office space, complete with terraces that provide panoramic views of the city.
In addition to the office space, it also houses event facilities and street-level retail spaces that enhance the urban landscape. A notable feature is the public viewing gallery, where visitors can experience the city’s skyline like never before. 8 Bishopsgate is a fusion of innovation and luxury, making it a prominent landmark in London’s ever-evolving cityscape.
Our work involved the design and installation of a unique stainless steel and glazed bridge positioned on the mezzanine level lift lobby, just above the reception desk, within the grand double-height main entrance.

This custom-designed glazed bridge stretches approximately 18 metres and features 100mm thick heat-strengthened laminated glass panels. It is supported by projecting structural beams in stainless steel, extending over 3 metres. The bridge is fitted with a structural glass balustrade along its edge, constructed from point-fixed 3-metre-wide laminated glass panels to ensure safety and aesthetics.
