“The building sits on Paternoster Square directly adjacent to St Paul’s Cathedral, surrounded by both historic and modern buildings. The design concept is drawn from the craftsmanship of the local context and its interior design seeks to restore Elizabethan vistas whilst synthesizing with contemporary architecture, remaining sensitive to the area.”
