New build office development at 93-95 Wigmore Street comprising 81,000ft² (7,525m²) office space above 12,000ft² (1,115m²) retail space.
The building occupies a prominent site in the West End, with an architecturally bold and striking exterior containing floor-to-ceiling glazing on all sides and terraces on a number of the upper levels.
Retail spaces sit at street level below the office floors, giving a balance of use across the space, with a series of three-storey residential units for both private and affordable ownership to the south of the building.
Cundall provided building services engineering, vertical transportation and sustainable design, recommending vertical solar hot water tubes at roof level which provide the building’s hot water in the summer, also doubling as an innovative screen to the plant. The site included two UKPN sub-stations presenting a number of coordination challenges to the design team.
Cundall provided building services and fit-out to turn this early 20th century warehouse into flexible office suites which are capable of being let as small, individual units, or combined to allow larger open plan spaces to be utilised, or on a floor by floor basis.
This project involved the major reworking of the previous Great Portland Estates headquarters on Great Portland Street. The building provides B1 office space at first floor and above, along with retail showrooms at ground and lower ground levels.
New Street Square consists of four new office buildings of different heights and sizes, and a separate facilities management suite, along with a new public square surrounded by restaurants and cafes.
