No. 1 Old Jewry, EC2 London, UK

This mixed-use development within the City of London consists of 63,000ft² net of office space over eight storeys, with 10,660ft² retail at ground and basement levels. The site is in the Bank Conservation Area and has three frontages: Old Jewry, Poultry and Grocers’ Hall Court.

The building, in keeping with the traditional streetscape, is clad mainly in Portland Stone. The concept is to provide three interlocking ‘blocks’ of stone, each relating to the scale and geometry of one of the three street frontages. The differentiation of each block is enhanced by a varying depth of reveal in the fenestration on each, decreasing from 400mm on Old Jewry to 200mm on Poultry to a flush treatment on Grocers’ Hall Court. The intention is to give the impression that the building is carved from a single piece of stone.
