New Ludgate awarded The City of London Building of the Year 2016

Gleeds is proud to announce that New Ludgate, an office development by Land Securities, designed by Fletcher Priest Architects and Sauerbruch Hutton, has been named as the The City of London Building of the Year 2016.

Chaired by Paul Finch, programme director of the World Architecture Festival, the selection panel were seeking out buildings that support the ambitions of the City of London in delivering a world-class working environment. The panel evaluated both the impact the building has had on the city street scene and the quality of the architectural design.

Paul Finch commented: “The judges felt that an area of the City where you would not have wished to walk or linger has been transformed. An eyesore had been removed and a destination created, which through the skilful deployment of colour lifted both the eye and the spirit.”
