A significant redevelopment of the old House of Fraser headquarters to the south of Victoria Street. The scheme provides 16,059 square metres of Grade A office accommodation, alongside 33 residential apartments and a small area of retail space at ground floor level.
The site sits within London’s Central Activities Zone (CAZ), on the edge of the Westminster Cathedral Conservation Area. The proposal involved the demolition of the existing building and its replacement with a 9 storey office building. Reflecting strategic, mixed-use policy objectives the scheme also provides new residential accommodation on the upper floors.
The design approach adopted mediates successfully between the sensitivity of the conservation area and the bulk of Victoria Street, while creating a high quality commercial environment. The development also utilises ground water sources and combined cooling, heat and power to achieve BREAAM ‘Excellent’.
