The Shard Viewing Galleries


The Shard Viewing Galleries

Basha-Franklin worked with Mace and Ellmer to deliver design and construction expertise for The Shard viewing galleries, restaurant levels and associated lifts, lobbies and stairs.


The challenge

The spaces would have to open ahead of the overall building programme, to coincide with the Olympic Games in London, so a very tight delivery program was required.


The solution

Basha-Franklin worked closely with Renzo Piano Building Workshop to ensure the design and finishes were executed to perfection in the built form.
