Portland stone was chosen for the facade of this building to complete the quartet on the crossroad junction of New Bond Street and Bruton Street. The mixed-use, scheme in Mayfair utilises a single staircase, which enables floor space to be maximised for office and retail use.
Flexibility is designed into the façade to provide the opportunity for dual use, either office or retail at first floor level. This brought both commercial and aesthetic success as it opened up the potential for a retail store with three floors, at basement, ground and first floor levels and provided an elegant form at street level. Current tenants, Prada, have utilised this potential.
The project was successfully completed on time and on budget. Stack-bonded, handset stone contrasts with the delicate finesse of the lightweight windows, with the alternating triple glazed bays providing subtle but playful animation to what is a very strong and solid building.
The reception area features a cast and sandblasted glass artwork by Georgina Griffiths, a London based artist.
