Tadao Ando completes ‘Silence’ fountain in Mayfair

  • Comment

Japanese architect Tadao Ando with BDP and Blair Associates has completed this ‘Silence’ water feature and street improvement scheme on Mount Street in Mayfair, London

The project for Grosvenor Britain & Ireland is the first phase of the company’s programme to revamp the public realm on its west London estate. Danish practice Gehl Architects advised on potential locations for the street improvements.

Peter Vernon, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland chief executive, said: ‘With over 300 years experience of managing and developing property in Mayfair and Belgravia we recognise that places are about more than buildings.

‘The appearance of streets, and the public space around buildings, is fundamental to the long-term success of the London neighbourhoods we manage.

‘Large-scale works like these require a long-term outlook but we can already see the results.  This is only the first phase of our programme, plans for the next wave of projects are already well underway.’

Tadao Ando’s ‘Silence’ water feature was jointly commissioned by Grosvenor and the Connaught hotel and delivered in partnership with Blair Associates Architects

BDP completed the schemes’ detailed design while Gardner & Theobold acted as project manager and MVA Consultancy undertook the transport analysis work.
