St. Mary Somerset was a church in the City of London first recorded in the twelfth century. Destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, it was one of the 51 churches rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The tower is located in Upper Thames Street, the body of the church having been demolished in 1871.
Wignall & Moore were commissioned to provide full interior design services from bespoke joinery to soft furnishing. In addition acting as site and project managers for the interiors fit-out phase. The designs for each of the eight stories are sensitive to the heritage of the tower whilst showcasing the beauty of this spectacular building.
This project is currently live and we are working closely with the client to assist in the completion of the main contract. This includes the Portland stone extension, new glazing, external lighting design and critical repairs to the heritage fabric.
