Designed by PLP Architects, London's 22 Bishopsgate tower is set to be the second tallest building in the UK. Situated at the heart of a cluster of skyscrapers in the financial district, this tower will be the first one in the British capital to adopt the WELL Building Standard -- which aims to use architectural and interior design to promote the health and wellness of building occupants.

The pertinent design features include 1,500 bicycle parking spaces, over 100 showers and a range of classes for occupants, in addition to laundry facilities and safety training opportunities.

22 Bishopsgate is part of a growing movement to make architecture about more than just meeting basic functions, but truly enhancing the health and well-being of occupants, with the underlying thinking being that this sort of boost will improve the quality of work produced by building occupants and enhance the general experience of working and visiting.
