The London offices of the important global law firm K&L Gates occupy two floors of the One New Change building, located in the heart of the City of London. The first three floors are devoted to shops and restaurants and the remaining four floors to offices. At street level, this multipurpose complex is crossed by two galleries at right angles, putting it in close contact with the surrounding neighborhood. At rooftop level there is a large terrace, conceived as a sort of urban square in the sky. The interiors of K&L Gates define a clean, refined and functional environment whose image is decidedly distant from the stereotypes of the conventional law firm. The lawyers' offices, enclosed by glass walls, are distributed along the facades, while the open-space workstations, together with the filing and common areas, are arranged in the center of the building.
