66-72 New Cavendish Street London W1

A new development of 18 upmarket apartments in central London for the Howard de Walden Estate. The scheme comprises two new buildings behind the retained 1890s facades of four town houses within the Harley Street Conservation Area and provides a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments

Two of the four townhouses were originally built as a pair and the new building provides the opportunity for larger apartments around a single central stairs and lift. A half landing stair arrangement negotiates changes in floor levels across the other two properties. The new rear elevation draws on traditional detailing with white glazed bricks maximizing light reflection into new courtyards. Projections and indents remember the original plot subdivision of the four townhouses.

The development has achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 through enhanced fabric insulation, whole house ventilation and underfloor heating fuelled from air source heat pumps.
