Designed by the renowned architect César Pelli, East Wintergarden is one of Canary Wharf’s most sought-after venues. The twenty-seven-metre-high glass atrium provides a spectacular setting for conferences, awards ceremonies, product launches, private parties and weddings.
The impressive city venue is the sister building to New York’s Winter Garden, with space for up to 1,000 guests. Its design is influenced by the heyday of art deco, with a unique polychrome marble floor and wraparound beech-panelled walls. The building transitions to suit different moods and occasions, illuminated with customisable colours at night and flooded with natural light in the day.
