Ten Trinity Square is a significant building close to Tower Hill in London. Once the Port of London Authority headquarters, the Grade II* listed neo-classical edifice was completed in 1922 and has an illustrious history including hosting the first meeting of the United Nations.

Prior to it being opened as a hotel by the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts group in 2016, tp bennett was appointed by the developer and Donban Contracting to convert the building from offices into a high-specification hotel with 38 private apartments. Following consultation with English Heritage and the local authority, the practice created additional floor space within the building and added three storeys of apartments, under a new sweeping zinc-clad roof. To enable the later hotel fit-out, the practice created room shells with interior finishes to key suites. The building’s Portland stone exterior, complete with Corinthian columns and statuary, was cleaned and the building’s signature rotunda courtyard erected, now a lounge bar. Once completed this enabled Four Seasons to complete the final interior elements of the hotel.
