Fletcher Priest completes Carmelite Riverside revamp

  • Comment

Work has completed on Fletcher Priest Architects’ refurbishment of Carmelite Riverside at 50 Victoria Embankment in London

The office scheme, which had an original budget of £25 million, included the revamp of the listed 19th century Carmelite House and the overhaul of an adjoining1990s block.

The Postmodern building was stripped back to its frame and replaced with a new building which ‘sympathetically responds to its environment whilst re-using the modern structure of the former building’.

According to the practice ‘the new riverfront façade is proportioned to enhance its presence and make it legible from the South Bank, while a garden and glazed pavilion at roof level give occupants magnificent views across the river to Tate Modern and the Millennium Wheel’.
