The overall masterplan includes 32,000sqm of offices, a tall residential building and a flexible building providing parking for 350 electric cars and 320 cycle spaces.
Eden Campus will sensitively integrate into the local context, respecting the historic townscape of Kingston with all four key buildings situated within a high quality green urban setting, designed by award winning landscape architects Gillespies.

Throughout the scheme there will be an emphasis on fostering biodiversity. As part of the project, The Hogsmill, one of London’s lost rivers, will be restored with natural banks, reed beds and local species planted.
The Honey Building
The proposed masterplan places the main BREAAM ‘Excellent’ rated 9-storey office building on the primary frontage facing the widened Eden Street.
The Honey Building will have a strong architectural identity, with the form of the building continuing the curved profile of Eden Street. This will have a 2-storey recessed lower element with a 4-storey footprint above. The double set back on levels 6 and 8 provides amenity terraces whilst allowing the massing to respect local views.
The Hive Building
The Hive Building is a second complementary office building will front Brook Street, set back on the top floor providing further amenity space. The two offices are fully integrated and designed for long term flexibility. At ground level, the joint entrance off Brook Street creates a grand and welcoming approach whilst defining the main reception area. This will also reinforce the new public realm being created nearby. A connecting bridge at sixth floor level will create a seamless transition internally to the proposed social and communal spaces located on the sixth floor of the Honey Building.
In conjunction with adjoining new developments, this will establish a tall cluster of buildings defining the southern edge of the town centre.
