5 Broadgate

This innovative design by Ken Shuttleworth of Make Architects came from the idea of a perfectly cast engine of finance. Extending the metaphor, the windows, courtyards and terraces are carved out of the beautifully-machined block just where they’re needed, helping to make 5 Broadgate one of the world’s greenest buildings, with 65% lower carbon emissions than the previous two buildings on this site.

5 Broadgate will provide a new headquarters for UBS, housing up to 6,000 people and featuring four immense trading floors – something much sought after by businesses today. Make’s designs also embrace other aspects of the Broadgate masterplan and will reinvigorate both open spaces and pedestrian routes. Marking a pioneering move away from traditional glass facades, 5 Broadgate is a new and exciting architectural era for Broadgate.

“This new site, in the heart of the City, signals the confidence placed in London as the world’s leading financial centre.”
Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Rt Hon George Osborne MP, at the ground-breaking event for 5 Broadgate

“The development of such an impressive new office signals the continuation of UBS’s long and successful relationship with the UK, the City of London and Broadgate.”
Ulrich Koerner, CEO UBS Group Europe, Middle East and Africa
