LONDON - IN PROGRESS

Westminster City Council has given unanimous approval for AHMM to strip back, overhaul and extend the former Debenhams department store in London’s Oxford Street. The massing will be increased to seven storeys, and after the sixth, the building steps back, making space for a terrace with perimeter planting, and a green roof-scape, significantly enhancing the biodiversity and urban greening factor of the site.

 

The terraces surrounding the new building at levels six and seven are split into sections of amenity space for the tenants and we have populated these areas with planters that run around the entire perimeter. These will be filled with biodiverse ornamental planting that has been designed to spill over the external perimeter and be visible from the street below.

 

The building also has a biosolar roof, which will combine the advantages of a seeded, extensive roof with PV panels to provide sustainable energy.
