[06/09/12] The £36 million mixed use redevelopment, 50 New Bond Street and 14 St George Street, has won a RIBA Award for the London Region.
The redevelopment created retail, residential and two high quality office buildings within a highly restricted urban site, surrounded by listed buildings. 50 New Bond Street was developed into a large retail unit and a prestigious 33,920 sq ft office development with a new façade which combined curved bay windows and sculptural faience ribs. 14 St George Street has an additional storey added above the existing retained façade and a new façade to the adjoining Maddox Street. Both buildings are situated in the heart of Mayfair, London and were designed by renowned Eric Parry Architects.
Hilson Moran was the building services consultants on both refurbishment projects with both buildings achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating. Passive design and energy efficiency measures were an important aspect in the design of the buildings. A combination of high specification glazing, as well as an efficient plant and light fittings with daylight control, helped ensure low energy consumption. The buildings also feature solar thermal panels to provide up to 40% of the domestic hot water requirement and photovoltaic panels to produce electrical energy on site.
