British Telecom wanted a building that was tailored for its own use but that would also be an attractive commercial product should future changes in its operations reduce its need for the premises.

It is still a leading example of an environmentally-friendly building, allowing occupants to control internal conditions using external blinds and opening windows.  When conditions are unsuitable for open windows the air conditioning system is automatically activated.
