Oxford St Development, England, UK - design by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
Number One Oxford StreetUrban Regeneration Project
Architect: Allford Hall Monaghan Morris
One Oxford Street is currently in Planning.
This project - between Oxford street and Soho Square - is being developed by Derwent London.
Originally a tower ws proposed (in 2006) but this was rejected by City of Westminster Council.
At street level there is retail with eight floors of offices above.
The faceting on the façade is influenced by minimalist artist Donald Judd.
Number One Oxford Street is a large, urban regeneration project above a major public transport interchange. The mixed-use project combines public space, commercial leasehold, retail opportunities, a theatre and a tube station at one of London’s busiest corners.
- Two new buildings will stand above a new Crossrail station at the junction of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street, in Central London.
- The design works to create a strong civic landmark that befits its location.
- Together, the nine floor buildings accommodate 172,200 square feet of high quality office space, bars, terraces, and a new 350-450 seat theatre, set around a plaza.
- The external fabric engages with both the city and the business of workplace through a richly detailed assembly of glass, metal and stone components that respond to solar orientation and the changing urban texture.
- The office environment benefits from passive green technologies, including natural ventilation and daylight from an atrium, whilst being protected from solar conditions by a responsive façade.
- This will be the first theatre to be built in Westminster for over 100 years.
- The tiers of the theatre auditorium reveal moments to pause and reengage with the city through glass fronted rooms and external terraces.
- A 350-450 seat flexible auditorium, a sprung timber-floored rehearsal space and performer facilities will provide for the future of West End entertainment.
- The corner building houses contemporary retail space over three floors.
- Shop frontage wraps the corner extending the street level activity onto the new plaza and towards a new office address via an entrance colonnade.
- The proposal includes a plaza, designed to accommodate east-west circulation as an alternative pedestrian route to the busy Oxford Street.
- The tree lined plaza, supplements the civic landmark with much needed public space.
The theatre entrance and street level bar/restaurant will both ensure activity in the plaza beyond office and retail hours.

Oxford Street Diagonals
Since its launch a year ago on 2 November 2009 the Shibuya style crossing, which was inspired by Tokyo’s famous district, has allowed more than 90 million people to cross the road diagonally in an X.
The busy intersection has given the millions of shoppers and visitors to the West End around 70 per cent more freedom to move around, and has helped boost annual sales figures in the West End which are up by 7 per cent.
