Hogarth House Offices

Hogarth House Offices

Office refurbishment and new commercial entrance to Hogarth House in London's Midtown.


Triangle Property


Holborn, London



Triangle acquired Hogarth House in 2014 as part of their overall estate. The building was purpose built for the Nationwide Building Society as its headquarters. The building originally comprised the main office and a branch office on the corner at the ground floor. It was built on the site of former “British Museum” central line station. The station was closed in 1933 and the Edwardian building with faience/stone base and brick upper was demolished in 1989 to make way for the current building.

The strategy is to refurbish the upper office floors while providing a more welcoming ground floor entrance than the existing. This is in tandem with the refurbishment of the former ground floor branch office, to form an independent ground and basement floor commercial unit. The nature of the building will change from an original single to multiple occupancy and the occupant of the commercial unit will almost certainly be different from those above, and very much requiring its own “front door” and street presence. Similarly, it is acknowledged that the current combination of the ground floor of the existing building and the public realm / streetscape around is of poor quality.

The proposals aim to improve this relationship by opening out the base of the building more to the street, and have been developed with regard to longer term public realm improvements.
