Chipperfield's Seal House wins approval

David Chipperfield Architects’ plan for Seal House in the City of London has won planning permission

The 18,000m² office and retail scheme, developed by the Sellar Property Group was forced to undergo a redesign after an earlier Chipperfield proposal was rejected in April 2008 over concerns it impacted on views from Wren’s Monument to the Great Fire of London (1679).

Consequently, the building was redesigned with an angular ‘cut back’ on the top four floors, and the building has been reduced in scale to prevent it from dominating the adjacent Grade II-listed Fishmongers’ Hall.

The planning committee voted in favour of the development by 12 votes to seven.
