Farringdon Fleet

Clerkenwell, London

Proposal to repair the urban fabric by spanning the railway cutting to create a large new public space linked to Clerkenwell Green, with newly animated street frontages, 24-hour galleria and mixed-use development that re-establishes the physical and historical connections of the area.

Retail galleria on route of the historic River Fleet with new landmark office building and apartments. The new public space piazza also re-establishes the rightful prominence of the grade II listed Old Sessions House.
