5 Hanover Square is designed as a contemporary response to its setting on a corner site within the prestigious but stylistically eclectic location of Hanover Square. Referencing a handsome Georgian building directly opposite, the facades at 5 Hanover Square employ a richly textured black brick, punctuated by deep window reveals lined with white precast concrete, and offset with vertical gold fins. The top floor is designed as a mansard clad in matt black photovoltaic panels, which equates to an estimated carbon saving of 18 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. Two areas of public artwork commissioned for the project express fractured grids in a black and white palette.
