Light and shade create a tranquil oasis in the heart of London.

London Wall Place is a new destination in the City of London, offering an acre of landscaped public realm set between two statement office buildings. Responding to a Client brief that required world class design referencing the historic setting and superb pedestrian links to the existing neighbourhood. Therefore the site’s historic grids, knitting together two existing heritage structures (the remains of St Alphage Church and a section of the original London Wall) with new pedestrian routes and a series of beautifully landscaped gardens were reinstated.

StudioFractal were selected to complement and enhance the striking architectural forms and materials and bring to life 1 acre of public realm including landscaped gardens, historic ruins, commercial and retail facilities and multilevel pedestrian routes.

A detailed lighting strategy was developed so that interior and exterior spaces were connected. A layered lighting design utilising direct and reflected lighting creates a softly undulating visual environment, making use of light, shadow, reflection and projection to complement and enhance the material palette of stone, metal, water and planting and encourage exploration. Therefore among others HYDRA was selected.
