The Landscape Guide

Westminster Cathedral Precinct

A new development of offices and shops has opened up the view to the Roman Catholic cathedral from Victoria Station. The cathedral was built 1895-1903 and has a well-proportioned piazza in front,  paved with stone and brick to match the cathedral. This is a bold idea for the creation of space in the city centre and the glass of the offices contracts successfully with the cathedral and the paving. Architects: Elsom pack & Roberts. The space links through to the glazed arcade of Cardinal Place.
