John Robertson Architects


Since its formation in 1993, John Robertson Architects has delivered a substantial number of high quality buildings both in the UK and abroad. The work of the practice includes many large office and residential schemes in prominent central London locations and it will complete two of the station over-site developments for Crossrail, at Moorgate and Farringdon East, both in the City of London.

John Robertson Architects is currently working on the headquarters of BankMed, a high-rise commercial tower in the Lebanese capital Beirut; 33 Central, a new commercial building overlooking the River Thames in the City of London for HB Reavis and The Colyer, the conversion of a 19th century building in Covent Garden into residential apartments for Aviva Investors.

John Robertson Architects is unique for combining cutting-edge technical design with an unrivalled reputation for the sensitive restoration and redevelopment of significant 20th Century architecture. In 2014, John Robertson Architects completed the refurbishment of One Southampton Street on the Strand, achieving the highest BREEAM rating ever awarded to a refurbishment, and making a building over 80 years old one of the most environmentally-friendly office buildings in the UK without altering its external appearance. The practice has also successfully delivered the refurbishment of such listed landmarks as the Daily Express Building on Fleet Street and Bush House, the former home of the BBC World Service.
