Following an open tender published in February by the City of London Corporation for architectural work at the Mansion House, Matthew Lloyd Architects have now been appointed to the project.

This key civic landmark, designed in the Palladian style by George Dance the Elder and completed in 1752, occupies a complete city block in the heart of the Square Mile and is Grade 1 Listed. Built as the official home and offices of the annually elected Lord Mayor of London, the building also provides a civic setting for state banquets, conferences, livery activity and business meetings.

The last major refurbishment of the Mansion House was undertaken in 1991-93 by Donald Insall Associates. MLA’s forthcoming work over the next twelve months will focus on the complete historic fabric, as well as the mechanical and electrical services. This will result in a full condition survey and schedule of repairs that will be used to shape a programme of restoration works, ensuring that the complex can best serve its purpose over future years.

The practice will liaise closely with Mansion House’s staff working at the building, as well as the City of London Corporation’s surveyors, who are responsible for its upkeep.
