The existing ‘E’ shaped building in front of Old Street, Bunhill Row and Banner Street was stripped to its structural frame and re-clad with new façades of glazed white bricks and coloured glazed panel.
The layout was re-configured and extended, creating a new pavilion along Bunhill Row.
The lower levels, previously a car park and back of house space, were converted into new offices space with access to inner landscaped area.
A rooftop extension, roof terrace and green roofs were added to create green spaces.
