Information from the RIBA:

The 5 Aldermanbury Square project does much to improve the urban realm of the City of London. It evolved to allow the creation of a new public space connecting Wood Street and Aldermanbury Square to the upper level of the Barbican High Walk. The new 18-storey building sits above this public space and consists of two staggered wings that are divided by a receding central section. The two entrances are linked by a triple height ground floor reception , with a sloping floor which drops a metre from north to south. The external frame and facades are formed in shot-peened stainless steel cladding, and are arranged in double and, immediately above the base, triple height bays giving a strong sense of verticality to the elevations.

Eric Parry Architects’ 5 Aldermanbury Square project scooped two awards at last night’s British Council for Office’s (BCO) awards ceremony (Tuesday, 7th October 2008), winning both the national and regional awards in the Commercial Workplace category.

5 Aldermanbury Square was described by the BCO judges as “bold and brave but also incredibly elegant”.

The project’s innovative, external structural frame, which created virtually column-free flexible floorplates, received particular praise, as did the building’s timeless quality and its well-considered use of materials.

Commenting on this double win, Eric Parry, of Eric Parry Architects, said: “We are delighted to have received two awards from the UK’s leading office industry organisation. We believe 5 Aldermanbury Square sets a new standard for office design in London, successfully delivering in excess of 15,000 square feet of flexible floor area whilst also greatly improving the surrounding public spaces.”
