Show Project DescriptionHide Project Description
The raw material for this ambitious urban renewal project is a block bounded by Golden Square, Brewer Street, Lower John Street and Lower James Street. In place of the wholesale demolition previously planned, the project allows for the progressive refurbishment and conversion of properties in the area, including listed buildings, while creating modern office space. New build offices are concentrated at the centre of the site behind retained facades on Golden Square and Brewer Street. New facades on Brewer Street have an identity of their own, reflecting historic plot widths, while concealing modern open-plan office floors. Materials have been chosen to complement the existing, highly varied townscape.
