This mixed-use scheme by AHMM is located at 242 Marylebone Road in LB Westminster and extends and refurbishes the original nine storey Woolworth House, designed by Richard Seifert.


Renamed Metropolis, the redevelopment includes a redesign of the existing car park area at the rear, which is replaced with a seven-storey stepped extension clad in glazed terracotta with planted terraces on every level that create over 6,000 sq ft of new landscaped gardens designed by BBUK.


In addition, the existing roof plant enclosures will be removed and consolidated, providing space for two new rooftop office pavilions on levels five and eight.


The scheme features very low embodied carbon as the majority of the existing building fabric will be retained, it will also use 100% renewable energy, to create an environmentally responsible development, achieving a BREEAM rating of Outstanding.
