IBM Building

The refurbishment and extension of the IBM Building will boost the South Bank’s status as one of London’s most important cultural and employment hubs.
The existing building, recently listed as Grade II, was designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and completed in 1983. It will be respectfully refurbished and extended by Stirling Prize winning architects Alford Hall Monaghan Morris. The proposals have been based upon significant research into the history and architectural intent of the existing building, including the extension elements themselves which were considered by Lasdun during the initial concept design stage.
The design, whilst respecting the buildings heritage and historic fabric, will deliver highly efficient and flexible modern day commercial office space of the highest sustainable standards and provide a long term future for the listed building, significantly improving its setting within the local conservation area and river frontage.
