Client: The Worshipful Company of Salters
Location: London Wall, London
Area: 5,000 sqm
The last building designed in 1972 by the office of Sir Basil Spence, the Salters' Hall comprises 50,000 sqft of offices, livery hall functions, wine stores, gardens, residential accommodation and historical archive.
Engaged to fully refurbish the building, with a brief to improve its income producing potential, sustainability credentials, visibility of the livery, and to carefully replace services whilst retaining the livery hall functions.
Our scheme (which has now been granted planning consent) creates a dramatic new entrance infilling a bleak undercroft and significantly improving the buildings appearance and efficiency, extending out existing floor plates and converting underused semi basement space into prime office with views over the original Roman London Wall.
Working with Faber Maunsell, a thoughtful re-servicing strategy has been created which maintains the integrity of this historic building.
