NEW LONDON AWARDS 2021

Shortlisted in the CONSERVING category
Cornwell House is a Grade II listed building in the Clerkenwell Green Conservation Area, featuring a multicolour palette of yellow and red brick, with touches of natural stone used for cills and parapets. Originally the building was a hotel and bar and the design has sought to retain the original hallmarks of grandeur. Internals and externals have been renovated and a new extension added at roof level. Partitions that created small cellular spaces unsuited to modern office life were removed to create expansive open-plan spaces that promote interaction and enhance a sense of space.
Vote for this project in the 'People's Choice award. The voting deadline is 1 November 2021.
