Sauerbruch Hutton and Fletcher Priest have completed this 30,700m2 office scheme next to the Old Bailey in the City of London
The New Ludgate project transforms a city block near St Paul’s Cathedral with two new buildings and a new pedestrian route and public square.
The nine-storey 1 New Ludgate was designed by Fletcher Priest while 2 New Ludgate to the north of the site was drawn up by Sauerbruch Hutton.
Sauerbruch Hutton’s office building features a colourful concaved façade which steps back from the street in response to the Old Bailey building opposite.
Both buildings have roof terraces which look out towards St Paul’s Cathedral.
The scheme for Land Securities replaced an earlier proposal for the site by Make which was scrapped.
