Winner of the ENVIRONMENTAL PRIZE

Sponsored by WICONA

60 London Wall, a previously tired and outdated office building has been extensively refurbished, reconfigured, reinvented and repositioned. Completed in November 2020, the scheme which occupies a prominent 1.3-acre corner site, successfully answers the client’s brief, creating a high-quality office designed for a diverse set of occupiers positioned to make the City of London their new home.

The pioneering scheme has achieved a BREEAM rating of Outstanding - representing an innovative sustainability performance attained by less than 1% of new non-domestic buildings in the UK.

60 London Wall, a previously tired and outdated office building has been extensively refurbished, reconfigured, reinvented and repositioned.

As advocates for retrofit, EPR Architects together with Structural Engineers, Heyne Tillett Steel and client, LaSalle, felt that there was an opportunity to bring the building back to life whilst preserving much of its original structure. As part of the designs, the steel frame has been retained whilst providing extensive new office space arranged over large adaptable upper floor plates, centred around a communal atrium.  

The upper storeys comprise of curvilinear glazed façades, addressing the five levels of accessible greened terraces. These planted terraces with views onto the adjacent Finsbury Circus and St Paul’s, provide sky gardens to be used as part of the workplace and for the wellbeing and enjoyment of the office occupants. 

With sustainability and wellness at the forefront, the scheme’s innovative design successfully answers the client’s brief, creating a flexible, high-quality office designed for a diverse set of occupiers positioned to make the City of London their new home.

Innovatively designed with sustainability at its core, 60 London Wall has achieved a BREEAM rating of Outstanding. From the outset, the team’s ambition was to drastically improve the building’s environmental credentials through thermal performance, passive design and the reuse of the existing structure. 

8,600 tonnes of carbon have been retained and the embodied carbon of the structural elements has been measured at 193 kgco2e/m2, sitting well within the LETI 2030 carbon target and just above 2030 targets.
