The scheme includes the refurbishment of the existing 7-storey office building retaining many of original ornate features including the iconic banking hall. Building services are sensitively replaced and upgraded into an all-electric building with energy provided through air-sourced heat pumps allowing for an extension of office space into the footprint of the existing plant area and the introduction of a new rooftop terrace as a shared amenity for all tenants.

“The improvements are designed to be sensitive to the existing Grade II* Listed building, interiors and local Bank Conservation Area context.”

The comprehensive and well considered re-positioning of the building is a prime example of working within an existing structure and reusing materials to enhance the building whilst reducing carbon emissions. Overall 41 Lothbury is designed to create an exceptional occupier experience by increasing floorspace and encouraging improved public use to compliment the extensive retail and leisure offers close by including Angel Court, Bloomberg Arcade, The Royal Exchange & The Ned.

“As Natwest bank’s original 1926 headquarters, 41 Lothbury is part of global financial history.”


Originally built in 1923-31 for the London & Westminster Bank to the designs of architects Charles Mewès and Arthur Joseph Davis, who had previously done The Ritz Hotel London and the Royal Automobile Club building on Pall Mall.

The project is targeting BREEAM Excellent rating and Platinum Wired Score and is due for completion in 2024.
