83420sqft office refurbishment in the heart of the City of London, first designed by Aukett Swanke in 1972 and for which we then completed a major refurbishment in 1994, making this the third time we have worked with this building. This continued reuse of the original goes to the heart of our embedded sustainable culture and approach to the built environment

Aukett Swanke were commissioned by Morgan Capital on behalf of KanAm for this major office refurbishment in the heart of the City of London, opposite the Bank of England and neighbouring the Ned.

The redevelopment of this building comprises an extensive ‘back-to-frame’ refurb with an extra floor and a predominantly new envelope to provide improved thermal efficiency and operational carbon and to give the building a new look for today’s occupiers.

The proposed facade, currently under construction

Floor plates are naturally light and, with on floor plant and urban greening, the building will achieve BREEAM Outstanding and NABERS 5* and create stunning office space looking over the Bank of England.

Our proposals gained planning approval in 2022 and the project is currently on site.
