Park House, Finsbury Circus, London EC2 Grade II listed
Client: Prudential Assurance Company Ltd
Examining the urban context of 16-18 Finsbury Circus revealed a significant commercial opportunity. Nondescript Victorian buildings at the rear of the site were clearly out of scale with Gordon and Gunton’s grand, classical façade and neighbouring buildings. Replacing them with a new building in scale with the context enhanced the area’s character and added greatly to the lettable space.
