Senator House

St Pauls, City of London

  • Client: Legal & General
  • Architect: Ben Adams
  • Scope: Refurbishment
  • Heavy refurbishment
  • New floors added & new facade
  • Working around existing tenants

Senator House occupies a central location within the City of London, between the river Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral. We worked closely with Ben Adams architects to refurbish and extend the 111,000ft2 building to create high quality, flexible office accommodation and communal amenity space. A new public garden will be created on Queen Victoria Street, offers an informal, generous entry sequence and forging new links with the adjacent Cleary Gardens.

The repositioning of this asset capitalises on its unique position between St Paul’s and the river and will include a new seventh floor roof terrace with stunning views, a café, new landscaping, public realm, and re-clad exterior. With four flexible light-filled upper floor plates of 20,000 sq ft, Senator will provide occupiers from all sectors the opportunity to secure a world-class headquarters with a robust specification coupled with elegant design.

Parmarbrook were appointed by Legal and General to provide structural engineering services. The scheme was made complex by the office building being occupied with varying vacant possession dates. The Scheme included re-cladding atrium infills, additional floor and MEP relocation.
