Great Windmill Street - Soho

The project was to provide a replacement property that comprised of a basement plus five storey mixed-use development within the heart of Soho, Westminster. The original building was constructed circa 1730 and although not listed, it was identified in the Soho Conservation Area Audit as an ‘unlisted building of merit, that makes a positive contribution to the Soho Conservation Area’. Through close discussions with the local authority it was agreed to design the new front facade as a 'scholarly replica' including to the mansard roof. A further top storey and rear extension was achieved to provide a restaurant unit across the initial three floor levels, with a three bedroom duplex apartment located above. Key features include traditional timber sliding sash windows with portland stone sills, hand made 'stock' brickwork, 'red rubber' gauged lintels and welsh slate mansard roof coverings.
