60 St John's WoodImages1 / Information
Location London NW8
Status On site
Squire & Partners received consent in spring 2019 for an 11 storey residential apartment building at 60 St John’s Wood overlooking Lord’s cricket ground, providing 112 apartments and a range of residents’ amenities including a swimming pool, spa and business lounge.
The design and material palette create a contemporary development which references the characteristics of adjacent Victorian mansion blocks. A palette of light buff-coloured brick and a series of horizontal concrete bands is animated with inset and projecting balconies with detailed metalwork to add articulation to the facade.
The distinctive ‘chevron’ rooftop profile of the metal-clad penthouse draws inspiration from the patterns used within the landscape of Henderson’s Nurseries, which were historically located opposite the site.The penthouse steps back from the building line to offer generous terraces and gardens for residents, as well as uninterrupted views over Lord’s cricket ground and the London skyline.
