51 Eastcheap, EC3 London, UK

Sheppard Robson's consented design for an office development for Stanhope strips the 1980s building back to its concrete frame, using this as the base to create a BREEAM Excellent office development that enhances its complex urban setting.

The building occupies a prominent location on Eastcheap, adjacent to the Grade-I listed St Margaret Pattens Church, and completes the urban block defined by Plantation Place. Sheppard Robson’s design strategy for the façades uses a rational interlocking grid structure that is characterised by the use of stone to the south and west elevations, and defined by the use of aluminium to the north side of the site. The change in materials helps the new design mediate between the different characters of busy Eastcheap and the pedestrianised Plantation Lane.
