Paul White, Director at BuckleyGrayYeoman said:

“42 Berners Street and 18 Wells Street make a major contribution to the ongoing rise of Fitzrovia, bringing a genuinely urban mix of uses appropriate to their fantastic location in the West End’s most liveable neighbourhood.

“The Berners-Allsopp Estate has invested in long-term value and the result is a pair of buildings with a timeless substance. The Berners St Façade of 42 Berners Street in particular has been constructed using two beautiful varieties of natural Portland Stone to make a dramatic improvement the streetscape of the local area.”

BuckleyGrayYeoman’s design for 42 Berners Street delivers a grand set-piece for one major of Fitzrovia’s major thoroughfares. The elegantly proportioned façade is constructed of high-quality solid Portland stone from the Jordans Basebed, with contrasting window setbacks that feature panels of Roach Bed Portland Stone that is visibly filled with the shells of turreted molluscs. The depth of the window and door reveals gives the building a monolithic, sculptural quality and a quietly assertive presence on the street. The upper two storeys step back from the street to create full length outdoor terraces for office tenants.

On the ground floor a retail/restaurant unit sits to one side of the building’s lobby, which features a desk in black marble with visible seashells that mirrors the detailing of the Berners Street façade.

The rear elevation of the building has been detailed with equal care, built of light-coloured brick with cantilevered terraces to provide each office floor with outdoor space. Windows throughout the building feature pale brass and grey metal window frames.

18 Wells Street responds to its location on a Fitzrovia side street with an elegant and contemporary exterior, clad in light brick laid in varying orientations and bonds to articulate the façade. Concrete lintels span the window bays adding further visual interest. On the ground floor, green faience-glazed bricks will provide a hardwearing finish that differentiates the use of the shop. Aluminium-framed full-height windows with Juliette balconies face onto the street.
