Contract value: Undisclosed
By creating two separate buildings rather than a megastructure, Make has opened up the ground level to offer views and public access to the medieval ruins of St Alphage Church, London Wall, Salters Hall and the Barbican. A series of publicly accessible elevated walkways link London Wall to the Barbican and the gardens of a new public park. The new buildings, on a site of significant historic importance, are clad in blue glazed ceramic tiles which are influenced by the knapped Kentish flint of the Roman and Saxon ruins.
