The extension and redevelopment of a central London Private Members Club to create an enlarged and improved club with serviced apartments above.
This unusual building, moments from Trafalgar Square, had previously operated as the Agency Private Members Club. This ambitious project required a considerable amount of negotiation with the planners to both increase the building envelope and change the use of the upper floors.
Among the challenges that the project presented were the addition of a new roof at the rear to accommodate an additional mezzanine restaurant level, new mansard addition to create a split-level apartment at 4th/5th floor with stunning views of the Opera House opposite and the creation of 6 luxury serviced apartments at the upper levels.
The project also involved the construction of a sub-basement for plant rooms & storage and the development of a new lift.
