Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, London

London, United Kingdom

In need of additional office space to accommodate its growing London operations, global law firm Gibson Dunn also sought a space that would characterize its progressive nature and embrace the next generation of workplace thinking. Following a review of its real estate options, the firm chose to retain its existing space in the 100-year-old Telephone House while expanding into the adjacent, modern Carmelite House—and charging Gensler with creating a design vernacular that would unify the two. The resulting, integrated space exudes a contemporary yet classic language, melding period architecture with modern technology and successfully marrying old and new.
