Woods Bagot and TP Bennett
Scope of Project:
Conversion of Port of London Authority building into a high-end hotel, including restoration of the existing grade II façade and new Portland stone extension.
The development at 10 Trinity Square is the restoration and transformation of the original Grade II listed former Port of London Authority building in the heart of the City of London.
The first-class scheme, designed by international architectural practice Woods Bagot, converts the 1920’s structure to include a hotel, spa, restaurant, club and 41 luxury residences all of the highest calibre.
The main focus of this prestigious project is the recreation of the building’s public realm including the modern interpretation of the original rotunda designed by Sir Edwin Cooper. The design team worked closely with English Heritage to ensure that the new development comprises with the building’s original concept whilst embracing a new and contemporary design.
Portland stone was specified by the design team for the building’s new north pavilion extension. Jordans Whitbed was selected due to its aesthetic qualities, suiting the design which played upon the natural elements of night and day and the quality of stone which Albion Stone could provide. The geological characteristics and range for the project was agreed by the design team by viewing Albion Stone’s large range panels.
Albion Stone supplied the project with 350m² of Portland Stone ashlar panels at 75mm thick for cladding.
