Bartholomew Lane

After other architects had fought unsucessfully for over 4 years to achieve planning consent, the clients held a design competition which Sidell Gibson won - and consent was duly achieved.

The project is situated adjacent to the Bank of England in the heart of the City of London. The facade of a former bank built around 1930 is retained in the two principal frontages up to the 6th floor. Behind this, and extending above it in four further floors is a highly efficient modern office, offering multi-tenanted lettable space for twelve floors.  New facades at high level are faced in Portland Stone. A striking Reception room with a new spiral stair rising three floors forms part of the design. BREEAM rating: Excellent.
