This scheme forms part of a large mixed-use redevelopment within the heart of London’s West End. A large new destination restaurant with a mix of offices and residential space above has been created to complement the regeneration of Kingly Street as a new catering destination close to Regent Street.
The site of a late 1970’s retail arcade was exploited to create attractive new space that brings life and vitality to Kingly Street. The restaurant maximises the use of basement and ground floor space, whilst the scheme’s careful attention to scale and mass belies the 100% increase in built volume across the site. The design team employed the use of vibrant coloured materials in the development’s new façade, paying homage to the area’s colourful heritage.
The scheme delivered substantial public realm enhancements through the remodelling of Kingly Street as a shared public space and the promotion of ‘Carnaby Echoes’, a unique public art trail celebrating the area’s lesser known musical culture.
