21 Moorfields

WilkinsonEyre as Architects

The completion of Crossrail in 2021 is triggering a regeneration of the Moorgate area, and 21 Moorfields – located directly above an existing London Underground station and a future Crossrail ticket hall – offers a major commercial opportunity. WilkinsonEyre was commissioned in 2012 to develop design concepts for this important site.


The development covers approximately 64,000m² and will offer a vast improvement to the current disused buildings, incorporating high-quality retail and commercial office space, improved pedestrian permeability via a reconfigured Highwalk and a new public square with retail and improved landscaping.


The development is arranged as two office buildings, east and west, related but unique in their architectural language and connected by a podium level. The public realm has been carefully considered to ensure permeability through the site from all entry points.


The existing site presented a number of constraints above and below ground, including proximity to listed buildings and conservation areas with restrictive view corridors, and the London Underground network below limiting space for the new foundations for the development. The structural complexities of the site are reflected and celebrated in the east building’s façade as large steel trusses.
