Tower Bridge is recognised around the world. We were privileged to be appointed by City of London Corporation to design the conversion and extension of a collection of Grade I and II listed buildings that have served Tower Bridge, (and London) for over a century.
These buildings and the people who work in them have played, (and continue to play) a vital role in the management and operation of Tower Bridge. As information technology has improved and taken the place of mechanics, the various structures and yards are now highly inefficient and no longer provide an acceptable standard of accommodation for the Bridgemaster and his team. Time has caught up with them.
The new scheme will consolidate the administrative and technical staff into modern and enlarged facilities, alongside a restaurant within the former workshop and yard, and a bar within the Grade I listed basement reservoir.
