The extensive office refurbishment for clients Lazari Investments at 82 Baker Street, London W1.
This impressive project comprised of the complete internal and external refurbishment of the property which included; window replacement, the infilling of the lightwell and courtyard, extensive structural works and modifications, a new linking atrium, two residential units and the creation of two roof terraces with a wildflower meadow, providing sought-after outside space and spectacular views over London’s rooftops.
The new atrium provides a hub linking three original buildings, the 1904 one being designed by Robert Lutyens as the Marks & Spencer HQ, while bridges at the second, third and fourth levels create physical links between the three. The atrium is made up of a frameless double-glazed system with an interstitial voile fabric to function as a ‘veil’. The veil adds a degree of privacy for views in and out while providing a bright and airy space at the building’s heart.
The building’s facade has been enhanced by a deep-clean of the stonework and replacing existing windows with sound-proof units, the appearance of which are in keeping with the building’s contemporary features.
New mechanical and electrical systems and services have been installed throughout the building, together with many other sustainable features such as Air Source heat pumps, heat recovery systems etc.
To complete the project, we carried out the Cat B fit out of the Lower Ground (Part), the Ground Floor (Part) and the Second – Sixth Floor inclusive.
All works were completed to meet BREEAM ‘Very good’.
