ESA were instructed by our client to prepare mixed-use designs for the development of the ‘island site’ bounded by Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road in London’s west end.
The site sits within a Conservation Area. Our brief was to develop an exciting and appropriate architectural solution for this challenging site which will seek to continue the regeneration of the east end of London’s most famous shopping street. Our response optimises this prime site, rationalising uses and re-configuring units to provide a high quality mixed-use development.
The new build development creates an efficient and integrated commercial scheme with modern interventions visible from Oxford Street. The scheme comprises part retained facade, part new build and part remodelling of a Grade II listed building. Part of this complex urban design scheme is the provision of new high-end residential homes at roof level with their own private amenity spaces and stunning views out across the city skyline. ESA have designed both the building and the spacious interiors which are due to start on site after the main building is advanced.
Phase 1 comprising 150,000 sq ft of flagship retail was completed in 2013.
