15-16 St Helen’s Place

Rejuvenation of historic building in the City of London

15-16 St Helen’s Place is the historic home of the Leathersellers’ Livery Company and lies within St Helen’s Conservation Area in the City of London.

The proposed scheme incorporates a retained facade facing onto St Helens Place and a new facade to the North looking on to 100 Bishopsgate. This new facade is formed by floor to ceiling glazed bronzed anodised curtain walling set behind a self supporting external precast concrete panel system. The ground floor patinated bronze curtain walling sets challenges of materials compatibility as well as availability and variability.

Interface are providing technical reviews of the contractors design proposals together with input on the selection and detailing of materials, testing regimes, mock ups and assisting the design team in taking forward the challenging demands of a high performing facade through to completion.
