Walsingham House, London EC3
Walsingham House was originally constructed in 1929 top a design by Howard Souster. The building in the heart of the City of London is situated opposite the Grade I listed St Olave’s Church, near the Tower of London. The site falls within an area protected by the GLA’s London View Management Framework, for views from the north bastion of Tower Bridge towards the Tower of London.
The interior of the building was demolished, with the Portland stone façade being retained. New opiled foundations were created to enable the construction of a steel frame structure, adding two floors to the existing eight storey building and nearly doubling the internal office space to 65,000 sqft.
We advised on all aspects of rights of light, daylight, sunlight and overshadowing to support the planning application.
