Carter Lane was designed by Rolfe Judd more than 20 years ago; we were subsequently commissioned to undertake a comprehensive refurbishment that has refreshed the building for a further two decades. Sitting directly opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral, this was always a building designed to complement, not compete, and the elegantly modest detailing has effortlessly stood the test of time.
With minor amendments to the exterior, the building has now been subtly revised to reinforce its connection with St Paul’s. It features a new double height reception, while the interior and services have been completely updated to incorporate contemporary energy efficient technology.
A key element of the original design for Carter Lane was the introduction of some great external space. Peter’s Hill is the key route which is part of the link from St Paul’s Cathedral to the Tate Modern. The north-south connection from the Cathedral to the river Thames was opened up along the western side of the building and this proved prescient when the subsequent development of the Millennium Bridge completed the dramatic promenade that links the Tate Modern directly through to St Paul’s.
