The Design for the HQ-1 Morgan Stanley 20 Bank Street building is meant to complement through the use of materials SOM's Bruce Graham design for the nearby Morgan Stanley building at Founders Court. HQ-1 also establishes a strong presence of its own on the Quay through its granite clad grid-frame highlighting a multi-story cable-glass enclosed atrium on the west facade beginning on the third level and extending to the roof that provides natural light into the U-shaped office plan configuration. Performing as a sound barrier on the east facade, the building's core extends the majority of the length shielding the indoor office environment from the Dockland Light Railway station located next door.
