Make wins planning permission for Old Bailey scheme

Make Architects' 30 Old Bailey scheme in the City of London has been granted planning permission.

The contemporary ‘half-doughnut’ design, for developer Land Securities, features two nine-storey office buildings which will replace three existing structures – Export House, Seacoal House, and Hillgate House.

Despite being backed by English Heritage, an earlier CABE review had left the watchdog ‘unconvinced’ and 'disappointed' by the scheme's lack of awareness of the area's character (AJ 31.01.08).

The northern building will provide 27,000m2 of office space, and the smaller 17,000m2 southern building will have retail space, which will look out on to Ludgate Hill.
