The practice, which recently won planning permission for a £600million redevelopment opposite The Ritz in Piccadilly, has been appointed by developer Alchemi Group to look at options for the central London site.
The scheme overlooking Trafalgar Square will replace a 1980s office building which is currently the headquarters of developer Land Securities.
David Adjaye, commented: ‘Five Strand is situated at a critical intersection for London’s diverse geographies – a place where the commercial, political, cultural, and ceremonial cores of the city converge.
‘The project team is highly sensitive to the rich interplay of references and is considering a range of options. I am very excited to be part of that team and able to contribute to the evolving narrative of this incredible site.’
