8 Finsbury Circus London
WilkinsonEyre has completed work on 8 Finsbury Circus, a £68 million commercial development in the City of London for Mitsubishi Estate London Limited and Stanhope.

The scheme works to the client’s overall requirements for an ‘exemplary’ new office building in this historic City setting. The site, which is adjacent to the listed Britannic House by Edwin Lutyens, has access from both Finsbury Circus and South Place.

The main challenge was convincing the City Planners to allow the demolition of the existing building. WilkinsonEyre’s proposals maximise the full development potential of the extremely constrained site, whilst respecting the surrounding listed buildings.

An art installation by Carpenter Lowings, commissioned for the project, runs the full height of a lightwell which, brings daylight down through the building and provides a visible connection between floors.
