48 Leicester Square was a familiar historic London building, comprising the whole west side of the square.

The 1920s building, an Edwardian structure characteristic of the area, was grand but outdated. Schneider’s brief was to create a new high-spec office building that captures the appeal of today’s West End while preserving the elegance of the original stone facade.

The goal was not just to reimagine but to reinvent – to retain the look and feel of the old building while unlocking the site’s true potential. Along with the completely new aluminium windows to the existing facade and core, Schneider has added an elegant curved roof including its primary steel structure and Portland Stone.
