Aldermanbury Square
Stirling Prize Nominee 2009
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.

Moorgate building
1 Coleman Street is an oval nine storey building occupying a rare island site in the City, close to the Guildhall. Despite the constraints of the St Paul’s Heights Code, the site has nevertheless produced 180,000 sq ft of space. Stanhope has developed the building to shell and core for Legal & General, who will undertake the fit-out and move its headquarters and 800 staff there. One floor will be sub-let.
