A complex, mixed-use, redevelopment which fronts onto two established and well known streets in the Mayfair Conservation Area. New art gallery space, high end retail and prime offices are provided in this comprehensive scheme.
Retention and refurbishment of existing street façades are combined with significant new build on a complicated site of many components. These include three plots fronting New Bond Street and four plots fronting Cork Street. All have rear access to a common mews which is accessed from Cork Street.
New, flexible and open spaces revitalise the streetscapes and also retain the character of the area. Significantly improved galleries, retail and office accommodation are provided as well as the transformation of the mews to create a new sensitive and sophisticated infill. The former, utilitarian service road is now an animated and unifying amenity area. This was facilitated with a ‘stopping up’ order for the end of the mews.
Views along the path of a historic parish boundary wall which is within the mews are maintained. A new stair enclosure design creates a focal point with a sculptural staircase. Its cladding is an art piece by the artist Nicolas Feldmeyer. Titled ‘Looking Up’, the artwork encourages the viewer to appreciate the tall volume whilst playing with light and reflectivity.
