Building on history

London Wall Place

  • Location London, UK
  • Status Built
  • Service Architecture
  • Sector Workplace
  • Area 74,300m²/800,000ft²
  • Client London Wall Partnership

Like its neighbour, the Barbican, London Wall Place is a significant City of London site. Within it lie the remains of St Alphage Church and a section of the original London Wall. We’ve unlocked these historic structures and replaced the site’s existing buildings – a 1950s podium and a vacant tower – with a swathe of high-quality office space.

In with the old, in with the new. Along with designing two striking new buildings that together will provide more than 75,000ft² of office space, we’ve reinstated the site’s historic grids, knitting together the two heritage structures with new pedestrian routes and a series of beautifully landscaped gardens. Uniting our new development is a unique cladding – an iridescent coating of concrete and faience that reinterprets the knapped flint of the site’s Roman and Saxon remains. Along the London Wall, we’ve created more than 250m of active frontage, bringing life back to the street.

The site is now better connected to its surroundings, and more than 50% of it is public space. It’s easier to walk through the area, and the streetscape is livelier too, making it an accessible and altogether more attractive City site.
