We have completed our refurbishment of the prominent 1970s building at 60 Charlotte Street, which has mixed the refinement of its Fitzrovia surroundings with the rawness of the original concrete structure.
We have completely transformed the existing entrance, doubling the size of the reception and creating a much better visual connection with the street. The office floors have been stripped back to their frames and now the original structure, as well as modifications made over the years, is on show. Exposed services help to celebrate the structure and retain a sense of height and space.
We have completed works at 1 Cavendish Place on Regent Street, where the new reception space has drawn inspiration from its context of classic materials including bronze, terrazzo, and oak. This creates a bright and welcoming contemporary space with a quality, high-end feel.
The entrance canopy has had a new lighting feature integrated to improve street presence and visibility from Regent Street. A phased programme of WC refurbishment has also upgraded the building.
Contemporary and stylish end of trip facilities have replaced underused basement retail and back of house space, providing modern amenity space for the users of this prestigious 350,000ft2 Midtown office building.
On the upper floors, we have created a large external amenity space for the occupiers on the previously under-utilised east side of the building, as well as slick and striking CAT A office fit outs over multiple floors, covering 3,000m2 of space.
We are pleased to announce that Barr Gazetas are in this years’ Architects’ Journal AJ100 list, which comes at a time of transformation for us. We have renewed our vision and focus as a practice, and can’t wait to share this with you all over the coming months. We strive to continue making spaces and places to make life better.
We’ve also been shortlisted for AJ100’s New Member of the Year Award, which is a brilliant place to be.
