Project Data

more informations

The first of a pair of buildings to be redeveloped for the Crown Estate, the site known as W4 sits across New Burlington Street from its non-identical twin, W5, facing squarely onto the west side of the world famous shopping street, Regent Street. The redevelopment creates new floor plates within the curtilage of this significant and historical site with retained listed façades at basement.

Two entirely new façades are created onto New Burlington Mews and New Burlington Mews Yard. These new elevations consist of a high performance unitised cladding system, featuring opening windows and a white frit pattern to control solar gain. The façade facing New Burlington Mews incorporates a double skin which gently curves inwards at the top and bottom, leaning away from the adjacent buildings and maximising the Mews width. The glazed roof to the atrium maximises the amount of light filtering through to the office floors and features glass structural beams and panels of glass measuring up to 7.5 x 2.5 metres.
