New Ludgate is the transformation of a London City block into a lively new quarter near St Paul’s Cathedral 

New Ludgate is the transformation of a London City block into a lively new quarter near St Paul’s Cathedral. The new development designed by Fletcher Priest, Sauerbruch Hutton and Gustafson Porter sets up a dialogue between two striking and complementary new buildings: 1 New Ludgate, designed by Fletcher Priest and 2 new Ludgate, designed by Sauerbrucht Hutton. The two practices collaborated to create a new pedestrian route through the site that leads to an urban square or piazza to the east. 

1 New Ludgate comprises nine storeys with retail shops and bars under glass awnings on the ground floor. The building boasts extensive external private space accessible form every office floor. This includes a loggia and a substantial south-facing terrace that provides uninterrupted views towards St Paul’s Cathedral. 

2 New Ludgate offers high-quality, up-to-date office space with a restaurant and retail areas. A generously glazed double-height entrance hall continues the space of the street into the building. The upper floors offer flexible office space, and there is a roof terrace with sweeping views of St Paul’s Cathedral.
