The extensive refurbishment and re-modelling of this grade II listed building on Hyde Park Corner, saw the conversion of commercial offices into high-end residential apartments in this highly sought after location.
Commissioned by the client, we worked alongside the architect Flanagan Lawrence, to develop the design and delivery strategy. Following an extensive pre-construction period, during which we developed the design to a level of cost certainty, we then transferred to a traditional contract to proceed with the delivery.
The main façade to the Grosvenor Crescent elevation was retained, whilst the rear of the building was demolished and replaced with a new 6 storey residential building. Working closely with the consultant team, we developed the design, integrating with the concrete frame, stone mason and MEP contractors, within a logistically tight and very complex delivery strategy.
The design is aspirational and fitting for the location and has a mixture of glazing elements, both internally and externally, with large span rooflights with glass beams, built into the structure. Movable brise soleil screens are included in the high level south facing screens.
The grandeur of the original building has been restored and the contemporary extension stands out in its central location.
