Arundel Great Court, WC2
This project is for the redevelopment of a city block on the Strand in central London, on a site close to a number of important listed buildings including Somerset House and St Mary-le-Strand Church. The site is currently occupied by a perimeter block which has few active frontages onto the surrounding streets, and private central courtyard. The masterplan aims to create permeability within the block as well as introducing a new mix of uses.
The site has planning consent for 147 private apartments, a hotel designed by Horden Cherry Lee overlooking the Thames and a 398,000 sq ft office building designed by Wilkinson Eyre on the Strand.
