NLA Awards shortlisting for St Helen's Square in City of London
Gillespies' design for St Helen's Square in EC3 has been shortlisted in the 'Public Space' category at this year's New London Awards.
This key public space lies at the historic junction of Leadenhall Street and St Mary Axe, and offers the third largest open space in the City of London (3325 Square Metres). Gillespies won the design competition to redesign this pivotal space and the design promises to deliver a world-class setting for the surrounding buildings.
St Helen's Square has been designed to provide a versatile space to accommodate different activities, including exhibitions and performances. The redesigned space promises to reinvigorate the area, creating a fresh and appealing public plaza for people to enjoy.
Several other projects that Gillespies has worked on are also in this year’s NLA Awards shortlist: Kidbrooke Village, Ram Brewery, Brent Civic Centre and the BBC Television Centre redevelopment at Shepherd's Bush.
