Location London SW1
Status Planning consent 2019
Plans by Squire & Partners were consented for a new six storey building in the heart of Victoria, at the intersection of Greycoat Place, Greencoat Place and Rochester Row. Comprising four floors of workspace with two duplex apartments on the upper floors, the ground floor is animated on all three sides with retail use.
The development follows the curved line of the street, and draws on the prevalent residential mansion block vernacular. Sandstone pilasters rise vertically across the façade framing a series of contemporary projecting bay windows and spandrels in dark bronze, expressed in groups to reflect the retail, office and residential uses within the building.
Simple scalloped details on the columns reference the neighbouring Art Deco inspired Artillery House, while intricate metalwork to the apartments add detail to the building façade.
