Large mixed-use scheme picks up planning in Westminster

  • Comment
This nine-storey building by Clerkenwell-based Tate + Hindle Design has won approval from Westminster council.

The local authority's decision yesterday replaces a previous consent for the site from 2001 with these improved designs for the mixed-use Davis House.

According to Tate + Hindle Design architect Iain Strudley 'the commercial element has been designed to a 'city' feel, with a clean, fully glazed, curtain-walled main facade and two deep lightwells, allowing maximum natural light into the deep 800m 2floorplate.'

Explaining the rationale behind residential elements of the scheme, the architect said: '[They] have their own architectural language using colour insulated render and terracotta with high-end specification finishes and materials providing quality private market apartments.'

The project progressed through consultation with the Greater London Authority (GLA) and met the mayor's concerns regarding low-energy and sustainable design principles.

The development will consist of 6,000m 2of offices and 700m 2of ground floor retail along with 38 apartments over 13 storeys, and will be situated off Wilton Road in London SW1.

Its completion is expected to be in summer 2007.
