Nightingale House, 65 Curzon Street
We are working with architects Pilbrow & Partners for Maple Springfield on Nightingale House, 65 Curzon Street, to redevelop and replace the existing 1980s office building on Stratton Street, transforming it into a residential development in Mayfair.
Designed in line with the surrounding area, 42 new residential units will sit above an arcade that emulates Mayfair’s historic and classic arcades with a lushly planted garden for residents. The arcade creates a space for amenities including the potential for retail and restaurant units whilst linking Stratton Street and Curzon Street.
The high-end residential units are situated opposite the iconic Mayfair Hotel, and the site itself brings challenges to the engineering design team. The site has a particularly complex constraint below; a large diameter sewer located in the adjacent road (Curzon Street).
One of the key features of this project is the extended basement. The design proposes a new 4-storey basement below the site, expanding upon the existing single level basement. The challenging boundary conditions make the creation of a deep basement a highly complex feat - the neighbouring historic buildings bearing masonry construction on shallow foundations are highly sensitive to movement.
A new residential development in the heart of Mayfair
