73 – 89 Oxford Street – London
73 - 89 Oxford Street
No visits to London should be without a shopping spree through Oxford Street. Retail and office space is in great demand here, so a block of houses on the corner of Dean Street was replaced by a modern mixed-use building with considerable space gains, for which Schneider supplied a whole series of facades.
A comfortable mixed-use building with more living and working space. In 2017 a mixed-use building was handed over to the tenants as a replacement for an entire block of houses at the corner of 1 Dean Street/89 Oxford Street up to 73 Oxford Street. Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands Architects accomplished the feat of combining the architectural requirements of the highly frequented Oxford Street shopping mile with the quieter, more comfortable areas of the Soho entertainment district.
Various facades merged within one building complex. The existing brick facade facing Dean Street was retained, yet despite its weight of 200 tonnes, it was raised 900 mm in its entirety to connect up with the new floor heights. The facade above it was clad by Schneider with matching recycled stones and unglazed terracotta fins. Showcases that can be opened and are prepared for the lighting, bordered with stainless steel and anodised aluminium, form the new unitised aluminium facade facing Oxford Street. The specially manufactured high-gloss stainless steel parts in particular demanded the greatest care on the part of our team in terms of the logistics and assembly work involved.
