“7 More London” is a new headquarter of the company PriceWaterhouseCoopers in Southwark, London. This building has achieved very good results in BREEAM which is BRE Enviromental Assessment Method for sustainable technical building. BRE method was presented for the first time in 1990 and provides testing of the sustainability of new office spaces in Great Britain. The building is located near Thames river and Tower Bridge. The existing 10 storey building was extended by more than 60 000 square meters.

Architecture studio Foster&Partners created a multi-angle building with a polygonal inner court where the wings of the building meet by concave bridges. The facade of the inner atrium looks very simple and discrete. The building has a number of ecological and energy saving technologies and materials. A solar facade made in Germany for example with an incredible surface of 16 500 square meters. Because of the low sunlight transmittance of the facade covering, the interior has an optimal temperature even in the summer, what reduces air-conditioning costs.
