Overview

The Circle is a residential building complex near Tower Bridge in Shad Thames, London SE1.

The building is a Grade II listed building, a post-modern marvel designed by iconic architect Piers Gough (lead architect at CZWG) and opened by King Charles (then Prince of Wales) in 1989.

Opened by Charles III, The Circle was a modern masterpiece that kickstarted the transformation of the once bustling commercial centre of London’s shipping industry. Surrounded by late 19th-century warehouses on cobbled streets, Piers Gough’s building features two contrasting design forms.

The Circle is clad in cobalt blue glazed bricks and comprises four quadrants. The street elevations are finished with stock brick matching the surrounding warehouses, whilst a striking blue cylinder façade references storage vessels and the dye and paint works prominently in the area in the 19th century.

In the central courtyard of The Circle is a bronze statue designed by Shirley Pace. It is a ‘Jacob’ a Dray Horse that pulled beer barrels from the famous Anchor Brewhouse, situated next to Tower Bridge, to the Tap Room, a public house popular with the dock and shipyard workers.

The Circle was Grade II listed on 12th February 2018. Historic England List Entry Number: 1450154.
