70 St Mary Axe Concrete


70 St Mary Axe

Providing 311,000 sq ft of space across 21 storeys, the semi-elliptical building at St Mary Axe quickly earned the nickname ‘The Can of Ham’. Created by Foggo Associates and built by MACE, this iconic building stands on the same street as the Foster + Partners-designed Gherkin.

A remarkable double height reception features MASS Concrete’s board-marked concrete wall panels – all individually hand cast.  The panels line the reception’s lift lobby and the central core, which forms the unique reception desk.  Several hundred metres of MASS Concrete board-marked ceiling beams link the external cladding features to the interior.

The same board-marked concrete finish continues up through the building, lining each lift lobby up to Level 20.

The building was used as the location for the interview stage in the 2019 series of The Apprentice.
