This mixed-use scheme in London's Mayfair Conservation Area accommodates two very different uses. At ground level is a modern street cleaning depot with associated offices and 14 high-quality, intermediate residential apartments across the first to fourth floors. An outdated, post-war building occupying the site was demolished to make way for the new building.
MSMR's design for the building responds to the architectural language typical of the area in a contemporary manner. This response includes strong, articulated roof forms and decorative brickwork. A diamond-pattern zinc roof and red brickwork in a diagonal pattern at the upper levels creates a sense of depth and scale within the elevation.
