E.G. Chandler for the City of London (1973)

Colechurch House is a Brutalist office block standing between the Mordor-esque Shard and river Thames, close to London Bridge. In addition to office space, it features shops, a car park, and accommodation in several levels, connected by an elevated walkway and a flight of stairs.

Colechurch House is named after Peter de Colechurch, the 12th century designer of the first permanent stone bridge over Thames close to this location. The modern building comes from E.G. Chandler, the architect who’s also given us the stunning Minories Car Park. It’s currently under threat of demolition.
