Sidell Gibson wins planning in Westminster in sea of listed buildings

  • Comment
This residential scheme by Sidell Gibson Architects - in the heart of historic Westminster - was given the go-ahead by planners late last Thursday.

The scheme, Brabazon House in Pimlico, is situated adjacent to the Grade I-listed St James the Less Church by architect George Edmund Street, and the Grade II-listed buildings of the Lillington Gardens Estate.

According to project architect Graham Lee, the new building is of a 'sculptured form' and uses materials sympathetic to both the church and the estate. The various terraces and exterior levels are designed to maintain strategic views of the church.

The project consists of 40 residential units, of which 13 are currently allocated to be affordable accommodation.

Sidell Gibson Architects' client is Westminster City Council, with Savills acting as planning consultant.
