Sidell Architects, established in early 2017 by Ron Sidell after leaving Sidell Gibson*, is informed by more than 40 years’ experience in the field. In 1973 he and Paul Gibson – now a consultant to the new company – founded the original Sidell Gibson Partnership. They were, with Giles Downes, Chris Curtis and fellow Partners of the day, responsible for the creation of a broad range of award-inning projects in the UK and countries overseas to include Germany, Iran, Spain, Switzerland and Libya. The Practice has been joined by several of Ron’s original team and the programme of work at Sidell Architects continues the same tradition of the high-level design of commercial offices, residential, hotel and leisure developments, cultural/heritage buildings and urban design master planning. Its commitment is to achieve maximum benefit and added value for clients, end users and the wider community. The office has the creativity and technical expertise to successfully deal with complex design issues, finding innovative solutions to satisfy planning requirements as well as environmental and sensitive site constraints.

30 Gresham Street

The project responds to the historic setting through the design of a contemporary building with a massing that is seen as a co-ordinated assembly of forms. Thus, individual parts of the scheme achieve a specific balance with neighbouring buildings and streets.

Designed by

Sidell Architects

The project was for a nine-storey building, bounded by four main streets (from North clockwise) Gresham Street, Lawrence Lane, Russia Row/ Trump Street, Milk Street.

The concept of one distinct solution for the curtain walling on each façade did not apply to this project. The three main cladding materials: glass, aluminium and stone are noticeably separate from each other.

On plan the building has an irregular arrangement, with a curved corner and façade that follows the angle at Gresham Street and preserves the urban space in front the Guildhall and Lawrence Jewry Street. The building is partly clad with "punched windows" inserted into the stone clad north elevation. The main curtain walling of the other elevations, consists of glazed and aluminium façades. All the façade types are projecting from the building plan for the first 5 floors and then change their geometry on the 6th, 7th and 8th floors where they are recessed. This solution reduces the visual impact of the building from Lawrence Jewry Street.
