Complete refurbishment of the Grade II listed, Princes House. The building combines offices, restaurants, the BAFTA headquarters and a historic retail arcade that connects Piccadilly to Jermyn Street. It is within the St James’s Conservation Area.
The façade improvements respect the original design and are carefully considered to provide an increased street presence to the arcade entrances. On Piccadilly, symmetry is maintained with a feature entrance to the BAFTA headquarters
The Piccadilly arcade entrance features a canopy by artist Andrew Bick, a transient and light saturated grid of colour. The animated piece will change with the light throughout the day, combining contemporary art sympathetically with a historic building.
Arcade shopfronts are refurbished with new stone flooring, brass detailing and feature lighting throughout. The basement space has been modified and adapted for use as a new restaurant with 250 covers. Office accommodation, accessed from Jermyn Street, has been significantly upgraded with a new entrance, reception and art piece.
Delivered in a number of phases, the first and second phases are complete with work ongoing to complete on the final phase.
