Orms wins planning for Oxford Street office scheme

  • Comment

AJ100 outfit Orms has been given the go-ahead by Westminster City Council to refurbish an office building on Oxford Street, central London

The London-based practice will remodel the 1950s modernist office block at 76 Oxford House, which will sit opposite the new Dean Street entrance to the Crossrail station at Tottenham Court Road. 

Plans include the removal of the existing car park - creating 80 cycle spaces and 8 shower units - as well as a new office entrance and restaurant with a two-storey glass pavilion. 

The eleven storey scheme, which is being backed by Great Portland Estates, also involves the complete re-cladding of the upper floors and stripping out of the floorplates.

In addition, the shops on the ground floor will be increased from single to double height frontages with stone clad piers. 

Richard Warwick, director of Orms said: ’The results of the refurbishment of Oxford House will fundamentally improve the existing building by providing excellent retail space, vastly improving the rear yard and creating an elegant elevation facing the new Crossrail entrance on Oxford Street. 

‘The building will be a significant part of the emerging improvements to the east end of Oxford Street.’

Construction is expected to start in July 2017 and complete in 2019.
