A combination of new build and retained features in a distinctive City office building 

41 Lothbury is a Grade II* listed former bank headquarters and its redevelopment has produced a rich blend of contemporary office space with the unique style and elegance of a traditional City landmark. GMW Architects have designed modern additions to improve the building’s office space and circulation. New open-plan office floors are planned around an atrium, which together with full-height glazing to the upper levels of the northern and eastern elevations, brings ample daylight into the office space. The refurbishment of the Portland stone façades and the impressive marble-clad banking hall give a new lease of life to the historic fabric of the building, demonstrating that these can be successfully reused and enjoyed as part of a vibrant commercial building.
