Make a statement
A striking landmark that acts as a beacon, day and night. With a focus on wellbeing and sustainability, with working spaces inside and out, the Lantern brings new life to an already thriving area.
Located on the corner of Hampstead Road and Drummond Street, the Lantern is a new development designed by leading architects Marks Barfield. It boasts over 180,000 sq ft of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rated office, retail and residential accommodation.
Seek out the light
A striking, geometric glass façade functions as a beacon to draw in passers-by as they approach up Hampstead Road from Warren Street.
The building faces South and is designed to maximise natural daylight and enhance long views out.
Warm and welcoming
A double-height reception (6.23m) builds on the brilliant first impression provided by natural stone and timber panelling.
Murano glass light features
A bespoke Murano glass light artwork hung from the ceiling draws visitors into the space, while a Murano glass feature wall sits behind a timber free-standing reception desk.
Move on up
The Lantern makes keeping active easy with a generously wide oak-lined stairway that encourages movement and moments to socialise along the way. No more awkward lift silences!
Space and light flow
Large open plan floors, up to 25,000 sq ft, arranged around a beautifully designed large central atrium flooding the floors with light.
Stay on the sunny side
The central atrium floods the building with mood-boosting natural light. Studies show strong links between brighter light and better performance in office environments.
Fresh air, fresh thinking
Terraces on 5 of the 7 upper floors offer a perfect spot for meetings, lunch breaks or simply time to yourself.
Pocket gardens on levels 2, 3 and 4 can be configured to create self-contained spaces vertically and laterally to create vertical ingratiation between floors.
