Through a sensitive yet contemporary reinterpretation of the existing fabric, Barts Square establishes a mixed-use quarter in the City of London, with residences, offices, and retail designed around new public realm, partially located within the Smithfield Conservation Area. For client Helical, we combined reuse of existing buildings and new architectural statements where appropriate, to create a permeable urban quarter where residents, workers, and visitors can thrive.
