Orms wins go-ahead for Tin Pan Alley music venue

  • Comment

Orms has received planning for a new music venue on Denmark Street in central London 


Located in historic buildings in Denmark Place and Denmark Street, the basement scheme will replace the former 12 bar with a 280-capacity grassroots music venue.

The project extends Orms’ plans for a 800-capacity venue which were already granted permission as part of its 19,510m² revamp of St Giles Circus.

The scheme will preserve the conservation area by moving the former Smithy at 22 Denmark Place and reinstating it after the basement works have been completed.

The design will reinstate the original courtyard relationship between the rare seventeenth century house at 26 Denmark Street and the former Smithy at 22 Denmark Place.

A new glass enclosure will provide shelter to the courtyard and vertical circulation to the basement venue.

John McRae, Director of Orms, said: ‘We are delighted to have secured consent to provide an additional grassroots music venue as part of the St Giles Circus redevelopment. This added to the large venue we are already providing ensures a diverse range of uses can be accommodated in this important central London location.’

Expected to complete in 2018, the larger masterplan for the St Giles Circus area also includes a new gallery alongside a mix of offices, apartments, hotels, and bars and restaurants.
