Welcome To The Gilbert

The Gilbert and One Lackington are being developed as all encompassing work and social spaces on Finsbury Square.

Both buildings will celebrate their original 20th Century construction, whilst creating uniquely modern environments where people want to work as they want to live. The buildings thoughtfully consider their characterful past and emphasize a new vision of space with natural daylight, external spaces, and a focus on sustainable architecture. Interesting richly textured places to work, The Gilbert and One Lackington have heart and soul.

The core creates a central circulation space. The focal point of a courtyard provides a green heart, which links north and south access and introduced six new terraces with southern exposure, directly from office floors.

Although focused on the working lifestyles of the present day, the building has a story to tell. Originally designed as a private members club by Frederick Gould and Giles Gilbert Scott, designer of the iconic British red telephone box and architect of Bankside Power Station now the Tate Modern, The Gilbert and One Lackington are being returned to their former glory.

Close attention is being paid to the unique and original features of these magnificent heritage buildings. The new refurbishment brings out the distinctive, characterful – surprising – nature of the original buildings, and introduces new standards of daylight, exterior space, clean air via natural ventilation from opening windows and sustainability.
