SPPARC has designed the scheme for developer RE Capital.
Located at 10 Greycoat Place, the approved plans will see the building repositioned to deliver flexible office space spread across eight floors including 5,000 sq ft of retail and leisure facilities on the ground and lower ground floors, and a 4,000 sq ft restaurant.
Greycoat Stores is a former warehouse of The Army & Navy Co-operative Society Ltd
The development will see the original Victorian building restored and reimagined including the addition of a bold replacement façade.
Construction is expected to start in September 2021 with completion anticipated in the first half of 2023.
Construction information specialist BarbourABI has the project valued at £18m with Blenheim House Construction bidding for the job.
Principal and SPPARC Founder, Trevor Morriss said: “The ambition for this proposal is to produce an exceptional scheme influenced by the building’s fascinating history to become a recognisable and welcome high-quality addition to the varied architectural character of the area.
“SPPARC has adopted innovative architectural techniques to generate the original design concepts for the building that reflect and take influence from the heritage of the original 1890’s façade sadly lost during the late 1950’s, to evolve an architectural composition of beauty and merit whilst respecting and responding to the inherent limitations of the location including the surrounding residential and educational neighbours.”
