Recently, the acclaimed Jean Nouvel/Sidell Gibson collaboration, One New Change, won the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects’ annual New City Architecture Award. This is the fourteenth major award claimed by the landmark building.

The Award is given to the the building which is judged by the Assessors to have made the most distinguished contribution to the streetscape of the City of London.

Ron Sidell from Sidell Gibson Architects, the delivery architects on One New Change, collected the award on behalf of Jean Nouvel.

“This is a fantastic and unexpected tribute to Jean Nouvel who can’t be with us tonight and is a major compliment to this collaboration and best practice model. We are especially pleased to win this award, as we see it as recognition for a magnificent building from our fellow architects – a hard crowd to please.”

Replacing the former 1960s Bank of England complex and facing St Paul’s Cathedral, One New Change provides 25,000m2 of retail space on three storeys, principally focussed on a vibrant and rich mix of fashion and food, with 35,000m2 of office space for 3,000 workers over four storeys. As a new landmark building, it represents one of the largest consolidated retail spaces across central London, embracing the commercial potential of the city and making a significant contribution to the public realm.
