Establishing a new headquarters for NM Rothschild & Sons in the heart of The City
New Court involved designing and building 140,000 sq ft of high-quality office space for NM Rothschild & Sons. This included an archive and research room for the Rothschild Archive, a roof garden, and a sky pavilion offering panoramic views across The City.
The redevelopment has enabled the bank to bring together all its London employees in one place and to meet the communication and technological demands of 21st-century investment banking.
New Court won the Company of Chartered Architects’ New City Architecture Award for 2011 and RIBA’s Award for Excellence in 2012. It was also announced as the RIBA’s London Building of the Year 2012, and shortlisted for the 2012 Stirling Prize.
The building was the first in the country designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning architect Rem Koolhaas, and was undertaken with partners including Allies and Morrison, Lendlease, Arup, and Museum of London Archaeology.
