The redevelopment of this entire city block in Marylebone provides 79 superbly designed private and affordable apartments, together with retail, restaurants and community facilities to all 4 streets, and public car parking in the basement.
The greatly improved public realm provides active shop frontages, wider streets and a new home for the Marylebone Farmers’ Market.
Internally it is a building without corridors - all the apartments are reached via a beautiful central courtyard. The apartments themselves are meticulously planned, each one enjoying a large verandah and generously proportioned rooms.
The concrete structure is clad in a distinctive and robust glazed ceramic facade, with cast aluminium balustrades adding to the richness of the detail. The architecture fits in with its Marylebone setting whilst being uncompromisingly contemporary.
“The architects have responded imaginatively to all the different constraints of the site, producing a design that will genuinely enhance the character and appearance of the area”
