Planning Consent for Oxford House
On Tuesday, 16 July, Piercy&Company's Oxford House office to residential conversion at 70 - 88 Oxford Street for Land Securities received planning consent from Westminster City Council.
Piercy&Company’s design remodels the existing 1960’s commercial building into 89 apartments and double height retail on Oxford Street.
The scheme retains a significant part of the internal structure of the existing 1960’s commercial building. However, the appearance and function of the building would be completely transformed with a new articulated façade, 89 apartments and double height retail frontage.
The façade responds to the vibrant and varied architectural context of Oxford Street, with a folded design inspired by traditional bay windows, bringing depth, shadow and articulation to the previously very flat surface. The bays provide views east and west along Oxford Street, creating a finely textured façade and conveying building’s change from commercial to residential space.
