The three listed buildings it is sited between informed 4 Cannon Street’s spatial and material design as a classic palazzo-inspired structure with a minimalist aesthetic drawn from the 1950s modernist block it replaced. The new-build seven-storey office links four adjacent buildings with similar form, scale and materiality but different architectural styles. Its footprint maintains an unobstructed view between Christopher Wren’s St Nicholas Cole Abbey and St Paul’s. The lower ground provides plant room spaces, lockers, bicycle storage and office accommodation. Open spaces form a sequence of small connected areas of public realm while roof terraces offer breakout spaces for staff.
