Goldman Sachs London Headquarters is a 300,000 square meter facility located on Farringdon and Stonecutter.  The building consists of 8 trading floors with a center atrium that protrudes through the entire building. The building is programmatically divided along a north/south circulation corridor that is flanked by numerous public spaces, such as a auditorium, employee lounge, gym, child care, and meeting center.  The building sits on a massive stone plinth which harkens back to the great british bank institutions of the 19th century.  The curtain wall is series of vertical glass shingles that is a modern interoperation of the Georgian bay window.
