This multi-residential project lies within the Stratford Place Conservation Area within the City of Westminster, and forms part of a much wider mixed use development bound by Wigmore Street, James Street, Picton Place and Duke Street.
The existing building is a handsome 1930’s red brick structure consisting of basement, ground and three upper floors. The building was until recently used as offices.
The new scheme refurbishes the building for residential use, retaining as much of the original street facade and renewing the Gray’s Yard (rear) facade.
Period features have been retained wherever possible and the elevation has been extended with a new mansarded upper floor, sensitively treated to enhance the existing streetscape of the Conservation area.
There are a mix of one, two and three bed apartments. The existing tall ceiling heights have been maintained whilst the window openings to the rear facade have been widened to maximise daylight.
The apartments incorporate high spec kitchens and bathrooms and prefabricated wardrobe units. They have generous open plan living spaces, with the larger three bed apartments enjoying a dual aspect space.
