Informed by contextual and historical analysis alongside an appreciation of the key townscape views we presented a series of scheme options that ranged from comprehensive demolition of the existing unlisted ground plus eight storey building to create new build residential accommodation.

We explored a variety of building massing options that sought to enrich the garden setting and maintain a strong ordered frontage to Lincoln’s Inn Field. The proposals had regard by LSE aspirations for the overall enhancement of its campus and the wider public realm.
