61 Southwark Street, London
Client: HB Reavis
We were appointed to undertake the services design for a redevelopment of 61 Southwark Street, renamed Cooper & Southwark, for HB Reavis. The existing building is a nine storey reinforced concrete frame building of approximately 8,000 sqm gross area constructed in the 1960s.
The works introduce new enhanced frontage and extensions to Southwark Street & Great Guildford Street and rationalise the existing mass of the building. Internal reorganisation of the primary reception creates a new level access from 61 Southwark Street. A second level access reception has been created for Great Guildford Street activating the street frontage.
The levels above ground have been upgraded to high quality office accommodation throughout. A number of tenants remained in situ while the works were carried out and the development is designed to achieve BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.
The new extensions create a consolidated appearance with the rest of the building and provide a prominent unifying presence at the corner of Southwark St. and Great Guildford St. Overall 1,155 sqm of B1 space will be added.
