Gateway Central

View all projects

Part of a grouping of three new buildings completing the campus at White City Place, Gateway Central develops the precise language of its neighbours for the 21st century. Muscular yet with refined detailing, the 11 storey building provides light-filled, flexible office space with two generous south facing terraces integrated where the building steps back as it rises. Gateway Central shares a service basement with its neighbour Gateway West, freeing the ground floor to be public facing and engaging with cafés, shops, a generous reception area, a cycle hub and a hairdressing academy for L’Oréal, one of the building’s main tenants.
