Designed by Piercy & Company, the new office will replace a 1950’s office block in a prime location in Mayfair with an 11-storey building, including two basement levels.

Overall the building will provide 85,000 sqft of office space over nine-storeys with floor plates of up to 11,000 sqft and 9,000 sqft of retail/gallery space at ground and lower ground floors and 7,000 sqft of terrace gardens.

The Berkeley Square elevation is formed by a grid of Portland Stone columns supporting smooth white cast masonry lintels. This Portland Stone is subtly graded from a highly textured roach bed at the base to a smooth grade towards the top. Overall, the building uses a hybrid superstructure formed of steel frame and cross-laminated timber floors.

“The building’s pared back exploration of proportion and solidity emerged in reference to a study of facade grids across the square and abstractly references the stacked stonework of Ben Nicholson (“circa 1936 (sculpture)”).”
