  • Description

    In 2010 construction began on the redevelopment of Milton Court in the City of London. The scheme represents the most important new cultural and academic project in the City since the completion of the Barbican. The design combines a new world-class performance and teaching facility for the Guildhall School including a concert hall and two theatres, with a 36-storey private residential tower. 

    The scheme is arranged into two distinct elements separated by an atrium bisecting the site: the school occupying the entire site footprint is formed into a 6 storey block with the tower sitting at its eastern end. The composition minimises any detrimental loss of daylight to the adjacent residential units while respecting long distance views, particularly from the Thames.
