November 2023

Architects' Journal publishes a First Look piece on 18-20 Greycoat Place, our newly launched workspace-led development in the heart of Westminster. 

'Client's View: 

"The client is absolutely delighted with what Squire & Partners along with our consultant team have designed. Such care has been taken to create a multi-use building that not only fits into the context but also stands out. Bristling with technical innovation, exemplary design and workmanship,18-20 Greycoat Place stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best in London and is something of which the team are very proud." Jeremy Titchen, director and development manager, Rockhopper Real Estate."

Architect’s View: 

"18-20 Greycoat Place is the next step along the journey of the practice’s relationship with this part of town. Drawing on the historic buildings in the area and the listed Artillery Mansions, the building employs a red sandstone in single-block columns that gently scallop as they rise. This effect softens the visual appearance of the building, whilst maintaining a solid structural expression.

Bay windows are employed to launch the occupants out into the street and to give a cut-glass effect from street level like a jewellery box. The rhythm changes at the penultimate floor where the use changes to residential, and the final set back floor with pressed metal panels echoes the varied and expressive roof-scape of the local context."

Henry Squire, partner, Squire & Partners.'
