Ten Trinity Square, one of London’s most significant properties is due for complete renovation.
Architect Woods Baggot hopes to recreate features of the original design by rebuilding a rotunda, previously destroyed by bombing.
The architects intend to retain the most import internal areas, such as the lobby, corner stairwells and main boardroom.
Ten Trinity Square’s upper floors will be demolished and replaced with two new glass levels, Skyscraper News reports.
According to Woods Baggot, these floors have been designed “to have minimum impact on key views externally: the glass side and rear elevations would step back from the existing slate mansard roof”.
Should the build go ahead, the development would include 30 apartments and 121 hotel rooms.
Offices in London are not only found in contemporary buildings. Many are located in more traditional settings – Ten Trinity Square was built following an architecture competition in 1912.
The building itself is a grade II listed property, located within the City’s Trinity Square Conservation Area.
