Mark Smith Architects
This cut and carve refurbishment project, just around the corner from Oxford Circus station, took a maze of endless corridors and under-utilised space and transformed it into a new white box ready for a tenant.
The basement and ground floor space was opened up through the removal of internal structure, and the entirety of the ground floor was levelled out through removal of elements of RC slabs and beams. Additionally we were able to take out an RC columns in the shopfront to really open up the space.
The building had been subject to numerous chops and changes over the years, and our ability to react quickly to findings on site and produce clear and straightforward structural information really helped keep the project on track.
