Berners Street

London W1

  • Address: 41-44 Berners Street, Fitzrovia, London W1
    Client: The Berners-Allsopp Estate

    The site currently comprises of 2 buildings, No.s 41-42 & 43-44 Berners Street. Both are currently office use, with 2 residential flats to the 5th & 6th Floors of 43-44 Berners Street. It is proposed to replace the two existing buildings of dated and inefficient office accommodation, with a new single building that will provide an efficient and attractive office space with generous floor to ceiling heights. It is proposed that a single building is erected with dedicated office and retail entrances on Berners Street. Office accommodation would be provided on floors 1 to 7 served by a single core. Each level would have its own outside space provided by a balcony or roof terrace. At ground and basement levels the retail accommodation would be linked by a large open void allowing daylight to penetrate the lower level. The aesthetic for the main facade is one of a stone frontage with deep set reveals to give a solid and high quality architectural appearance.
