7 Clarges Street
Location London W1
Status Completed August 2016
7 Clarges Street comprises a bespoke office development as part of a family of new buildings incorporating Clarges Mayfair apartments on Piccadilly, 7 Clarges Street and The Kennel Club headquarters. Inspired by the established Mayfair streetscape, the façade uses Portland Stone with hand carved fluted stone columns and bronze framed windows and balconies.
An illuminated projecting canopy marks the office entrance, referencing historic covered entrances at nearby Claridge’s and Burlington Arcade. Fully glazed openings at street level offer views into the reception area, designed as a gallery space in which bespoke commissioned furniture and artworks are displayed.
Internally a pale Portuguese limestone floor is laid in a subtle checked pattern inspired by British tailoring and craftsmanship, also evidenced in the selection of soft furnishings which display various herringbone and check fabrics. Feature walls are lined with European walnut and blood red leather panels edged with contrast yellow stitching in a nod to British fashion stalwart, the Dr Martens shoe.
Throughout the office accommodation, a clubhouse feel continues with high end facilities including a cycle store with Brompton bike storage, generous changing facilities and leather lined lifts. Office floors are open and light with full height glazing, and external terraces on the upper floors.
