5 Aldermanbury Square

In June 2001 Eric Parry Architects was appointed to propose and develop a masterplan and building design for the site of the existing Royex House adjacent to London Wall.

The new 19-storey building raised above the public space consists of two staggered wings divided by a receding central section that admits light into the triple height ground floor reception space, linking the two entrances.

5 Aldermanbury Square was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize 2009. It won a RIBA Award 2009 and both Regional (London) and prior to this a National Commercial Workplace at the British Council for Offices Awards in 2008.


“This bold commercial building sets a new benchmark for this part of London. An innovative structural frame allowed the architects to produce an incredibly elegant building with a timeless design quality.”
