Petredec Limited is a global LPG trading and logistics company. Their new London HQ is located in The Leadenhall Building, informally known as “The Cheesegrater” was designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. The building’s distinctive wedge shape and the building’s mega-frame structure without the conventional concrete core creates unusually light, open and flexible office space. The mega-frame gives the building its structural strength, but the RSH+P signature yellow steelwork also confers its visual identity and is a great example of seamless engineering and architectural vision.
Interior concept of Petredec follows the Cheesegrater’s design philosophy. A large, flexible open office landscape occupies majority of the floor plate. Cellular spaces, lighting and mechanical systems conform to the building’s modularity. Building’s structural members and services are left exposed. The spectacular views are prioritised and amplified by creating visual frames and vistas and the use of clear glass partitioning set against the dark, monochrome ambience of the trading floor.
