David Chipperfield has submitted these plans for the redevelopment of Seal House on Swan Lane in the heart of the City of London.
The proposed scheme, for the Sellar Property Group, is Chipperfield's first major commercial project in the City of London, and will see the existing 1970s building transformed into a 13,000m2, 10-storey, silver fritted-glass office block.
The scheme is on the last site to be developed along the stretch of the Thames between Fishmongers' Hall, which abuts London Bridge, and Cannon Street Railway Bridge.
David Chipperfield said: 'Our proposal for Seal House is a smooth, sinuous form encouraging visual and physical links between Upper Thames Street and the River Walk, creating a contemporary backdrop for Fishmongers' Hall.'
The proposal is also in line with the City Corporation's desire to 'improve and enhance the River Walk' along this section of the Thames.by Max Thompson
