Planning Secured for Sustainable Retrofit of 10 New Bridge Street in London

HOK’s London studio is collaborating with real estate developer Atenor to create a best-in-class office building with a vast array of public benefits.

The City of London recently approved plans for a deep retrofit of 10 New Bridge Street, a 1960s office block located near Blackfriars Station.

The project will provide around 77,500 square feet of high-quality office space over eight stories. The renovation prioritizes the well-being of building users and the local community with the addition of a new pedestrian passageway linking Bridewell Place and Bride Lane. Other new public amenities include an art wall, juice bar and public house. Office occupants will enjoy new bicycle parking and four outdoor terraces with views of the London skyline.

“HOK is delighted that 10 New Bridge Street has been granted planning approval” said David Weatherhead, design principal for HOK’s London studio. “We have designed a modern, vibrant and sustainable place of work, embedding WELL principles and incorporating nature at every floor. We look forward to this exciting project being realized.”

The design preserves more than two-thirds of the existing structure, retaining existing embodied carbon and reducing the project’s environmental impact. The project is on track to achieve a minimum of BREEAM Excellent certification. Biophilic design elements include a green wall in the double-height office lobby, the outdoor terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of natural light.
