This month we received planning permission for a three-storey extension and office refurbishment of 17,000sq.ft at a historically sensitive location set between Listed buildings in Whitehall, London.
Permission was also gained to extend the existing McDonald’s restaurant to provide a seating area at first floor. We are now working on a potential second phase of extension and the scheme is now proceeding towards construction early next year.
We received planning permission for a new double height retail facade of a building on Carnaby Street. The retail facade will be clad in a new metallic mesh which will change colour when viewed from different angles while walking down the street. This is part of a refurbishment of the building including a new office fit out on the upper floors and a remodeled entrance lobby.
Architecture Today have published a great article on our No.11 Floral Street scheme in this month's magazine. The article takes an in depth look at the detail design of the textured faience facade on the new retail shopfront including a study of the manufacturing process involved. The cover photo of the Specification Today suppliment shows the detail of tiles in all their beauty.
Our 18,000sq.ft office refurbishment scheme on Lincoln's Inn Fields has been succesfully completed and handed over to the the new tenants this week. The scheme includes a set of stunning new structural glass bay windows on the first floor and a new copper roof with a new roof terrace at the fifth floor.
The scheme was sensitively designed to sit comfortably next door to the world famous Grade 1 Listed Sir John Soane museum overlooking central London's largest square.
We have submitted plans for a major refurbishment of the St. Martin's Courtyard development in the centre of Covent Garden.
The schemes consists of an introduction of a number of new restaurants into the central courtyard along with a new large first floor terrace and an arcaded collonade below. The project also includes a stunning new flower canopy along the Long Acre entrance and striking new entrance features on Upper St Martin's Lane and Mercer Street.
The scheme is designed to create an exciting new food oasis in the centre of London by introducing imaginitive architectural design into the existing bland courtyard space.
