Piercy & Co’s Marylebone housing nears completion
[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + PROJECT DATA] Work is nearing completion on Piercy & Company’s five house scheme in Marylebone, London
The five three-bedroom four-storey town houses are located just off Baker Street.
The development features brick façades with timber-clad balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The new-build houses are the first to be developed as a group in Marylebone since the eighties and sit within the Portman Estate conservation area.
The project is expected to complete at the end of the summer.
The architect’s view
‘We were asked by Great Marlborough Estates at 1-6 Clay Street to refine and develop an existing consented scheme. The detailing and proportions of the consented scheme façade were refined and the internal spaces redesigned to incorporate increased floor to ceiling heights, improved layouts and additional sustainability measures. We also worked to optimise the reach of the daylight introduced through large roof lights and open stairs at the rear of each townhouse - an important strategy for these single aspect houses.’
