Dept W

11 March 2019

BuckleyGrayYeoman were initially appointed on Department W in January 2012. Schroders acquired the ownership of the building in 2016 and retained BuckleyGrayYeoman to refurbish and rejuvenate this former department store which was completed January 2019.   The existing building was characterised by its history – a single store owner refused to sell to a family wanting to create a new high end department store, forcing the early 1900’s development to be built as a lopsided neo-classical building with a gap in the middle where the Spiegelhalter building remained.   Over the years, little remained of the Spiegelhater’s building with only the façade surviving. BuckleyGrayYeoman retained and celebrated this architectural…

Berners Street

22 February 2019

BuckleyGrayYeoman have recently completed No.s 41-42 & 43-44 Berners Street. Both were generally office use, with 2 residential units to the 5th & 6th Floors of 43-44 Berners Street.

21 Soho Square

30 October 2018

Mediating between the historic context of Soho Square and the new Crossrail development at Tottenham Court Road, 21 Soho Square is very much seen as a gateway into Soho. A sympathetic refurbishment and extension to a Grade II listed Regency townhouse and former warehouse, the development delivers 27,000 sqft of characterful working space. Originally Cross and Blackwell’s headquarters building, the site presented a rare combination of formal offices and industrial floorplates. The architectural narrative of the two buildings however had been lost through external alterations and poor internal refurbishments undertaken in the 1980′s. The design sought to achieve distinctive expressions for both buildings within a coherent…
