Theobold’s Road

London, Camden

Located in the Bloomsbury Conservation Area, opposite Greys Inn Fields, the building is a 1950’s replica, of the original building destroyed by bombing in the Second World War, built for offices. The front façade was retained, due to its contribution to the setting of the Conservation Area, and refurbished. Works included: adjustments at ground level to provide an additional entrance for a restaurant, traditional street railings set in stone plinths and replacement replica triple glazed sash windows etc. The rear of the building has been extended, an additional floor / penthouse added and the interior completely remodelled, including new service lift core.

The design concept is a fusion of contemporary and traditional. The front façade retains it original character, as stated above, in keeping with the Conservation Area. The new rear façade responds to the some what eclectic character of the surroundings which provided the opportunity for a contemporary design, allowing full height windows and Juliet balconies to be employed, taking advantage of views across mature gardens with large trees.
