This residential scheme of 89 high specification apartments is a conversion and extension of a 1960's commercial building, retaining a significant part of the internal structure.The appearance and function of the building is completely transformed with a new articulated façade and double height retail frontage.
The façade responds to the varied architectural context of Oxford Street. Inspired by traditional, storefront bay windows, the folded design brings depth, shadow, and articulation to the previously flat elevation. Creating a finely textured façade, the bays provide views east and west along Oxford Street, signifying the building’s change from commercial to residential use.

Piercy&Company's elegant folded façade reflects the quality of the new apartments and greatly improved retail space. Their extension and remodeling of this tired 1960s office building is a sophisticated addition to the on-going regeneration of East Oxford Street"
