London Buckley Gray Yeoman has seen off competition from rivals ORMS and Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to win a major office refurbishment on London’s Southwark Bridge Road
The up-and-coming Shoreditch-based practice, which rocketed 17 places up the AJ100 rankings this year, has been appointed by M&G Investments to design the refurbishment and recladding of the 14,000m² office block in Bankside.
The ‘landmark’ building will complete the corner of the Bankside block while delivering 4,180m2 additional lettable floor space. Buckley Gray Yeoman director Matt Yeoman said: ‘42 Southwark Bridge Road will be a landmark high-quality office building.
‘All along the South Bank, world-class modern buildings such as the Tate Modern extension and NEO Bankside are enhancing the architectural character of the place. Our goal for the refurbishment of 42 Southwark Bridge Road is to produce an aspirational building with this modern quality, which will enhance the surroundings and sit comfortably within the healthy mix of old and new.’
