Following the successful completion of 73-89 Oxford Street I wanted to thank you and your team for the efforts to get us to into this position. Your attention to detail and reactive manner has assisted in us achieving the design intent. The quality of what has been installed is of the highest standard. Both the Great Porland Estate and the Architect have commented on how impressive your works are. The building finishes are something which will be iconic for years to come. Look forward to working with you in the future.

Description

Situated in the heart of Oxford Street and commissioned by Great Portland Estates, this scheme consists of 5,150 sq m of high quality Grade A flexible office space and 3,100 sq m of retail space at street and lower levels.

Balancing the current expectations of Oxford Street development while respecting the character of the neighbouring buildings in the Soho Conservation Area was key, as the site is on a prominent corner location at the junction of Oxford Street and Dean Street – opposite the Tottenham Court Road Crossrail Station which is due to begin service this year. The primary façades are clad in unitised glass shadow boxes with stainless steel and anodised aluminium linings, while the secondary façades use unitised reconstituted stone or unglazed terracotta fins.

This choice of high quality materials echos neighbouring black granite buildings, appearing reflective in oblique views, with a lighter, more delicate, contemporary appearance on approach. A kink in the site is expressed in the Oxford Street façade and widens the pavement towards the Crossrail station, opening views to the entrance and easing the flow of pedestrians into Dean Street and the station plaza. 69-89 Oxford Street and 1 Dean Street has been designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent.

The project started on site in January 2015, and completed in early 2017.
