Make architecture studio has completed the first phase of St James’s Market redevelopment, featuring a block with a ribbon-like stone and bronze facade and the restoration of a late 19th-century building, as shown in this video produced by Dezeen.
Located on Regent Street St James’s, the scheme creates 2,000 square metres of new office space for one of London’s main shopping areas. St James’s Market also includes six flagship stores, seven restaurants and half an acre of public space.
Make were commissioned by The Crown Estate and Oxford Properties to regenerate the historical site and create a new public destination.
These two buildings, though notably different in style, compliment one another with a shared material palette consisting of Portland stone and bronze detailing.
In addition to restoring the late 19th-century building, an eight-storey glass wall was fitted to join the old frontage with the corner of 22 Regents Street.
Bronze strips have been added to the facade of the new build, in order to emphasise the curvature of the facade.
