41 Lothbury is part of the cluster of historic buildings at the heart of London’s Square Mile that symbolise the essence of the City as a global financial institution. The building 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.

Uncompromisingly modern, but nonetheless discreet additions have been made to the retained elevations. These improve the building’s office space and circulation. New 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 fabric of the building, demonstrating that these historic buildings can be successfully reused and enjoyed as part of a vibrant commercial workplace.
