A unique architectural partnership between the practices of Norman Foster and Jean Nouvel 

Legal & General have submitted plans for a striking new office and retail development, to be known as ‘Walbrook Square’ in the heart of London. Designed by Atelier Foster Nouvel, The project incorporates approximately 1 million sq ft net floorspace on the 3.7 acre site, with 95,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant floorspace and 875,000 sq ft of office space and will be composed of four buildings each with their own distinct character but which together read as a cluster. The development is centred on the creation of a new public square and new streets based on historic routes through the site, which will allow increased public access. Also incorporated into Walbrook Square will be a publicly accessible exhibition space to house remains of the Roman Temple of Mithras.
