Fletcher Priest has been given the go-ahead for a mixed-use scheme on the site of London’s Piccadilly Lights
The scheme on the island site will incorporate the famous advertising lights into its façade.
More than 10,200m2 of new office space will be created by suspending floor plates above the site’s retained two-storeys of shops and restaurants.
The proposal also includes a sculptural ceramic tiled roof which modulates in response to the facades or terraces below it.
The office’s balconies and terraces overlook Piccadilly Circus’ Eros Statue, while large south facing terraces on the upper floors have views across London towards the Palace of Westminster.
According to the practice, the project ‘will cleverly combine new striking architecture with improved historic details.’
