New City of London office building behind a retained facade.
The scheme involved the construction of a new twelve-storey structure on the site of a former Bank of England building. The stonework façade was retained along three elevations.
The existing floor-to-floor height was increased, the existing superstructure behind the retained facades demolished, and basement level reduced. A new ninth floor was added, fully glazed along two elevations, as was a portion of the roof.
The new building provides office accommodation arranged around a series of distribution cores. The building incorporates a green Sedum roof.
