This project is a new apartment building in the traditional context of the Mayfair residential area of London and replaces an unsympathetic 1930’s block.
The original 18th Century building that occupied the site was grander in scale and detail than its neighbours. We therefore decided that the new building should be of a unique character, whilst continuing the tradition of the neighbouring Georgian context.
The contemporary classical replacement building is one of the few and the first to be built in this area of Mayfair for decades. It integrates harmoniously with the surroundings, with a pediment and stone façade, a piano nobile and classical detailing. The building possesses a unique identity, momentarily breaking the horizontal rhythm of the otherwise repetitive terrace.
