Panorama St Paul’s

81 Newgate Street

For Panorama St. Paul’s, an outdated 1980’s office building was transformed into a contemporary mixed-use development, featuring a public roof terrace and a new ‘street’ through the site, becoming a gateway destination into London’s Culture Mile.

The transformation modernises the design of an existing building in a series of architectural interventions, creating flexible workplaces with larger office floor plates and plentiful outside space. At every opportunity, office floors were provided with their own external terraces, created by a stepped composition of new bays.

On the roof, a large publicly accessible terrace was created with a restaurant, wildflower meadow, and feature access stairs, providing a unique view of St. Paul’s Cathedral. At street level, an arcade was introduced, activating the public realm and featuring an expansive digital display wall for curated arts and media that link into the City’s Culture Mile.

The project improves the building’s environmental performance and minimises environmental impact by reusing Portland stone from the existing building, employing modular construction methods, specifying low carbon materials, and adopting a zero to landfill policy. 81 Newgate Street will be net-zero carbon enabled.
