St Martin's Courtyard by Smith Caradoc-Hodgkins and the MR Partnership

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] These are the first images of the recently completed St Martin’s Courtyard shopping centre and ‘urban village’ in London’s Covent Garden

The scheme has been designed in a series of phases by Smith Caradoc-Hodgkins Architects and the MR Partnership which acted as strategic architects, developing the overall framework which formed the basis of the joint venture for project backers Shaftesbury and the Mercer’s Company.

The mixed-use development, between Long Acre, Shelton Street and Mercer Street, features 25 shops, eight restaurants, 10,000m² offices and 75 flats.
