DSDHA were appointed to design a new build mixed-use development on South Molton Street in London, following an invited competition in December 2008. The building was completed in 2012.
Located on a prominent corner site, facing Oxford Street, the proposal for 28 South Molton Street responds to its unique location, its surrounding context within the Mayfair Conservation Area, and its historic location on the banks of the hidden River Tyburn. The design builds on the qualities of the area whilst providing a contemporary, sustainable building that embodies high quality design and craftsmanship.
The building negotiates between the distinct characters of South Molton Street and of Davies Street and identifies the importance of 3 addresses: South Molton Street, Davies Street and the frontage on to Oxford Street. At roof level, generous greenery and residential roof terraces unite the form to create a memorable local landmark helping to consolidate this busy junction.Structural Engineer: Ramboll
