1817 - Eccleston Place
An existing 1830s building, previously in use as an ice factory, power station and a garage is being reused and redeveloped to provide creative workspace, retail units and two new restaurants. The project sits next to the newly completed Eccleston Yards, a dynamic community hub space, also designed by architects Buckley Gray Yeoman.
- The existing building is a three-storey structure with an exposed steel frame to the front elevation and part load bearing masonry structure with cast iron columns at the rear.
- Lowered ground floor level under part of the site (up to half a storey), with levels changed to suit new scheme.
- Existing building retained where possible, with new feature saw-cut roof, new cores and exposed structure.
- Constrained site set back from the road, with access through small arch and surrounded by neighbouring properties.
- Located over the Crossrail 2 exclusion zone and close to LUL Circle/District Line tunnels.
