Make Architects for London Wall Place Partnership and Brookfield Properties & Oxford Properties
Contract value: Undisclosed 
GIA: 45,500m²

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.
