Acquired by Atenor in April, Fleet House is located at 8-12 New Bridge Street E8C4, close to Blackfriars Station and within the Fleet Street Conservation Area.

This is the company’s first project in London, reported e-architect.

The refurbishment plans for this office building have been designed by HOK, the London-based architecture studio.

About 80% of the building’s current structure has been retained according to the design drawn by HOK.

In addition to the installation of window boxes, the retrofit work will feature a planted façade, a range of outdoor spaces and a new public passageway, Bridewell Passage.

Bridewell Passage will link Bridewell Place to Bride Lane and boost access to the nearby Bridewell Theatre and St Bride’s Church.

 The interiors offer a flexible workspace and are designed to maximise daylight.

HOK design principal David Weatherhead was quoted by The Construction Index as saying: “Our approach has reimagined a tired existing building into an exciting place of work through a development that is kind to the environment, respectful of its place while future-proofing the site,” said. “In addition, the design retains 80% of the existing structure and features a high-performance façade that will reduce operational energy use while respecting its historic context.”

Atenor UK director Eoin Conroy was quoted by Construction Enquirer as saying:  “The opportunity to reposition Fleet House aligns with our mission to bring Atenor ’s track-record to London and provide with it a leading-edge occupier experience which is sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and focused on user well-being.”
