53-55 Frith Street

This project will see three adjacent buildings on a vibrant corner of Soho remodelled to create a new restaurant and retail space at ground level, upgraded workspaces across four floors and an additional, sculptural rooftop storey.

By strategically remodelling the building’s lightwells and replacing two existing building cores with one centralised one, we will reinvigorate the existing office space and increase valuable shop-frontage to the street.

The new rooftop extension has been made possible by relocating the building’s services and is sculpted from self-supporting, cross-laminated timber and then overclass with copper. The voluminous workspace created will have access to an outdoor terrace with views over London and will create a striking silhouette with minimal impact on the dense urban surroundings.
