48 Leicester Square, LSQ’s External Clocks

In the heart of London, 48 Leicester Square is a familiar historic building. Make Architects approached us to assist in their restoration of this historic building. We responded to their brief to reference 1920’s design in our installation of four 1.6m diameter illuminated clocks to crown each corner of the building.

The brief was to capture the appeal of today’s West
End while preserving the elegance of the original stone façade. Our design and build team created and installed the clocks to the full client speci cation.

The clocks can be seen at every angle from one of
the world busiest squares below. Each clock is fitted with a timekeeping unit interlinked to our dedicated control system with power failure backup. They are also programmed to alter the time at the summer and winter changeover.
