PROJECT INFORMATION

Project Name: Tottenham Court Road

Location: Tottenham Court Road, London

Sector: Urban Design

Client: Amey plc

Status: Complete

Services: Architecture and planning

Type: Renovation

Area: 50,000 sq ft

On Tottenham Court Road, we developed the London headquarters for the British Transport Police, a new police station, and a Marks and Spencer’s new format food store.


This project is part of a larger Private Finance Initiative and Facilities Management project for London Underground, provided by Amey Ventures.


The complex mixed-use development had to be designed to incorporate the complexities of the Home Office high security requirements, on a tight urban site.


The site being within the Bloomsbury Conservation Area required careful and lengthy negotiation with the Planning Authority and local Conservation Groups.


As a result, the massing and external finishes reflect the differing identities of the busy Tottenham Court Road and the quieter Charlotte Street and Coram Fields area to the rear.
