The Paternoster Masterplan has been designed to create an appropriate setting for St Paul’s with the Cathedral as its chief point of reference, reflecting the traditional texture of the City. The new buildings provide 1m sq ft of office and retail space, yet are independent of each other as a result of the Central Infrastructure design which provides underground vehicle access to each building, leaving the piazza to be enjoyed by pedestrians. Thus the new Paternoster Square, linked with the landscaped churchyard of St Paul’s Cathedral, offers a pleasant environment for office users and tourists together with a series of shops and restaurants providing services and amenities.
