The tower at 125 Old Broad Street used to be the home of the Stock Exchange, until that body moved to new premises in Paternoster Square a few years back. Since then, the former building has had its currently unfashionable Brutalist clothing replaced by the doubtless soon to be unfashionable curtain glazing. I was there on behalf of OD Projects to shoot their recent fit-out of the 26th floor for a firm of lawyers. While the interior by architects, Gensler, was impressive, I was immediately drawn towards the floor to ceiling windows. With views like these, you wonder how anyone gets any work done.
