New London Awards 2022 Winner - 76 Upper Ground
Winner in the CONSERVATION category
The refurbishment and extension of 76 Upper Ground (the IBM Building) will provide 420,000sqft gross of office and retail space. The building, recently listed as Grade II, was designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and completed in 1983. It will be respectfully refurbished and extended based upon significant archive research into the history and architectural intent of the existing building, including referencing original design studies carried out by Lasdun.
The design will also deliver highly efficient and flexible modern day commercial office space of the highest sustainable standards, providing a long-term future for the listed building and significantly improving its setting within the local conservation area and river frontage.
