Allies and Morrison designed this significant Head Quarters within the sensitive historic site of St Paul’s Cathedral precinct of Paternoster Square in the City of London.
The design for 10,000 sqm office space with 2,160 sqm of retail at ground level, reconciles an efficient internal arrangement around a central atrium with a series of unique façades clad in Portland stone and red brick. Varied elevations contribute to the scale and experience of the surrounding streets. The two materials of the layered façades give a sense of solidity and depth, concluding in a limestone tower facing Paternoster Square.
