10 New Burlington Street & 1 New Burlington Place
Two äsisterÎ buildings which have redeveloped a disparate series of buildings into a cohesively layered urban block. Architecturally both sensitive and confident, the new buildings sit behind Grade II listed facades on Regent and New Burlington streets, while a triple-glazed skin distinguishes the schemes' presence on New Burlington Place.

10 NEW BURLINGTON STREET The first part of an evolving urban story, W4 Regent Street is a layered reinvention of an urban block in central London. A triple-glazed volume _ gently curving inwards at top and bottom _ connects two retained faades on Regent and New Burlington streets to a collection of secret garden spaces, remade from the unused Burlington Mews. A core is inserted into the building_s new centre, defining one edge of a five-storey internal room that brings light, activity and movement into the central zone. Clad in scalloped blue faence tiles, the core walls soften light and surface. Below, forgotten vaults are re-inhabited and put to new uses. Above, an exposed steel structure on the sixth floor differentiates itself from the lower levels and opens up the building_s perimeter to expansive views and a rooftop terrace. In territory defined architecturally by Nash, W4 arranges 40,000 square feet of new retail space at basement, ground and part first floor below optimised office floorplates totalling 95,000 square feet across six floors. The project_s non-identical twin, also for the Crown Estate, sits across the road on New Burlington Street. AwardsWAF Future Project Commercial Mixed-Use Award 2013
