33 Margaret Street, London

Status Completed 2012
Size 13,500m2

33 Margaret Street stands apart from other buildings as a bold vision of excellence and innovation in contemporary office design.

The building was commissioned by Great Portland Estates and let to Savills as its new global headquarters. It is confidently modern in character and highly sustainable in operation, yet also balances those attributes with the responsibility to create a complimentary neighbour to the listed buildings of Regent Street and enhance the wider conservation area.

By working closely with Westminster City Council the project team has been able to completely redevelop and revitalise the whole site. This has involved the demolition of a low quality building on Margaret Street and the transformation of two neglected early 20th century grade II listed facades on Regent Street.

The 33 Margaret Street project promotes sustainable economic development by understanding and responding to the needs of medium to large scale businesses in the West End. It provides large flexible floor plates, a highly legible, dynamic and exciting new entrance lobby experience together with the provision of generous high level external amenity terraces. The new building also promotes sustainable travel through the provision of cycle parking and showers.

In overall terms the 33 Margaret Street project successfully forges the key elements of cultural context and economic opportunity into a valuable and enjoyable contemporary civic asset.

John Silver was the Director responsible for the project at BFLS.

Doone Silver Kerr worked in partnership with Flanagan Lawrence during the construction stage of the project.
