Regent House.

As part of one of London’s most prestigious estates, we are working with award-winning architects Stiff + Trevillion to develop an attractive mixed-use scheme in the place of a dated office block on Edgware Road and several residential buildings close to Marble Arch.

This plot, situated on the corner of George Street and Edgware Road, is trapezoidal in shape, with an extended rear access onto Nutford Place. The existing four-storey building with partial basement below comprises shops and restaurants at ground floor level, in keeping with the area’s strong Arabic influence. Above this, the structure houses a mixture of residential and commercial units.

In the first stage of development, the mixed-use block, as well as two older terraced houses adjacent to this, will be entirely demolished to make way for the new eight-storey block which will span the entire plot. In addition to this, a two-storey basement structure will incorporate car parking and plant, crucial for this urban location.

At ground floor, flat slab concrete construction is considered the most appropriate. For the floors above, structural materials are currently under consideration, with both steel and concrete considered for the longer span office areas, and concrete for the 6 × 6 m grids required for residential units. The offices will come in a variety of sizes and shapes, with grids optimised for specific needs, all equipped to a high standard to suit a range of users. Due to the position of plant at basement level, we have been able to design a lightweight, steel-framed roof.

In terms of cladding, a high-quality finish is crucial. On the building’s Edgware Road frontage, the suggestion is for stone and bronze to be used, highlighting the units’ commercial usage. Along the Nutford Place residential end, traditional brickwork is considered more appropriate. At attic level, however, more lightweight materials have been proposed, combining metal panels with glazing.
