30 St Mary Axe CLIENT Swiss Re


"Swiss Re hired Sutton Young after having to sever its relationship with its first marketing firm. The contrast between the two was stark. The professionalism, creativity, client focus and enthusiasm of Sutton Young was refreshing."

SARA FOX, Swiss Re Project Manager for the build of 30 St Mary Axe

"It looks great."
High praise from Lord Foster


Squaring the Circle


Column free, rectangular or square office space is the norm because floorplate efficiency and rental income are fully optimized.

But, when a building is round, how can it provide effective and efficient floor space? Well, looks can be deceiving. 30 St Mary Axe has rectangular floorplates all round - as we demonstrated with this useful and unique publication.

First Class

With the property successfully leased and sold, our work was complete. A bold shape joined London's skyline, took pride of place in our portfolio and appeared on thousands of letters.
