A Victorian façade is retained and a new city office emerges in a blend of old and new, which positively contributes to the Fleet Street Conservation Area.
On the western boundary of the City at the heart of the old newspaper producing area around Fleet Street, the site at St Bride Street presented an opportunity to design a brand new building and to pair it with the restoration and refurbishment of an elegant Victorian façade.
From the outside the two buildings appear separate and distinct. Inside, however, they are a single entity: there is no transition in quality or design values as one moves from one to the other. The scheme’s commercial potential has been maximised, while the character of this well-used City intersection, with its attractive mix of period and contemporary structures, is preserved for the future.
