NEW LONDON AWARDS 2022

Shortlisted in the RETROFIT category

A 1930s campus with one foot in the City, repurposed to retain its embodied carbon. Our rationalisation of two buildings on the City fringe – one a 1930s former members’ club by Giles Gilbert Scott – has preserved over 90% of their embodied carbon. Reconfigured to focus on an internal courtyard, with a central core and new entrance facing Moorgate Crossrail, they can work separately or as a single headquarters. The internal space has been elevated to encourage homeworkers back into the office, its refinement shifting from civic grandeur on the outside through to original detailing and then a light-touch, stripped-back finish within.

Vote for this project in the ‘People’s Choice Award’. The voting deadline is 1 November 2022.
