View Project Intro

St Helen’s Square is located at the foot of The Leadenhall Building — designed by RSHP — in the heart of the City of London. A busy thoroughfare, the redesign of this keyspace is set to transform it into an exciting public space. The project will create a world‑class public realm, befitting its prestigious location.

The design is lively and colourful, authentic to the character of the City of London, but interpreted in contemporary terms. Gillespies is creating a place where people will want to convene, relax, and repose - a versatile space to accommodate different uses and activities, including exhibitions and performances, and an enduring place to be enjoyed for generations to come.
