In the middle of an office block lies the ruins of St Alphage London Wall, where the church has a long history dating back to medieval times.

Webb Yates Engineers have been commissioned by the City of London to rejuvenate and open up St Alphage Gardens alongside the adjacent London Wall Place development. 

St Alphage Garden is the redevelopment of a complex site in the city of London. The adjacent road required a new retaining wall to support the thrust loads when planters and other landscaping structures were removed. Beneath the site there were a number of historic brick vaults that further complicated the structural solution.

The new development reinterpreting the site’s extraordinary history whilst restructuring its basic layout in order to promote a more accessible space. The new scheme makes the ground level access more pedestrian-friendly, and the adjacent walkway creates a welcoming threshold to the gardens and the London Wall Place development beyond.
