Foreign and Commonwealth Office Renovation in London

Foreign and Commonwealth Office Renovation in London

HOK’s renovation design for the 1 million-sq.-ft. Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London preserves the character of the original 1870s Victorian construction while creating one of the UK’s most technologically advanced buildings.

Working with English Heritage and specialist conservationists, significant historical and architectural elements are identified and restored to their original appearance. Discreet use of original materials, colors and building techniques retains the historic character and harmonizes new and old elements. 

A phased program spanning 17 years allows occupants to remain on site without interruption.
