12 New Fetter Lane, London

Status Completed 2015
Size 147,000 ft2

12 New Fetter Lane is an innovative 15 storey building located on the western fringe of the City of London. The triangular site is located on the edge of the Chancery Lane Conservation Area to the west and the high rise new development of New Street Square to the east. The building design responds to this context by hinging around its southern corner to produce a rotated step form.

At ground floor, a tall single storey level includes the main entrance, retail accommodation and service bay. 12 floors of Category A office accommodation are located above, and a basement level provides plant, storage and cycle parking.

Environmental sustainability was a key factor throughout the development of the design. The building achieves a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, offering a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions compared to current building regulations.

The building has been let to international law firm Bird and Bird as their new London Headquarters.

Doone Silver Kerr acted as Design Architect working in collaboration with Flanagan Lawrence Architects.
