Nightingale House, 65 Curzon Street

Our proposals for the redevelopment of Nightingale House present an almost unique opportunity to reconnect Mayfair’s important green spaces of Green Park with Berkeley Square through the replacement of the existing 1980’s office building which dead ends Stratton Street. The office building had originally replaced a late 19th century apartment building.

The design draws on historic characteristics of Mayfair’s arcades, creating a vaulted double height space lined with bronze framed shop fronts which curves between Stratton Street and Curzon Street. Set above the arcade are 32 new residential apartments. The site is complemented by a lushly planted garden dedicated to residents.

The proposals suggest the opportunity for the enhancement of the public realm complimentary to the City Council’s strategies for the West End. The new delicately scaled and richly detailed façade is aligned to the adjacent Mayfair Hotel and forms a slender gable on axis with Stratton Street and on Curzon Street.
