122 Leadenhall - The 'Cheesegrater'

Case Study
Designed by Richard Rogers of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, 122 Leadenhall has become an iconic part of the London skyline. Dubbed ‘The Cheesegrater’ during its planning phase by City of London Corporation’s Chief Planning Officer Peter Rees, the name stuck and has since been accepted by Londoners and tourists alike.

Towering at 225 metres, the building was designed to fit into the London skyline without compromising the view from the nearby St Paul cathedral. This was achieved by the shape of the building, which is like no other thanks to its very noticeable sloped façade.
