One Eagle Place, London
Waterman are pleased to announce that One Eagle Place has won the BCO National Award for best commercial workplace. The award, established in 1992 provide public recognition for top quality design, functionality and a benchmark for excellence in workplaces.
The renovated building, developed by The Crown Estate, the Crown Estate in partnership with the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan, is located in the heart of the West End and features 6,000m2 of premium office space, as well as 2,000m2 of retail respectively 1,700m2 of residential space.
The scheme involved a redevelopment of an urban block in a dialogue with the existing buildings in two conservation areas (Regent Street and St James’s) with both conserved and new façades, to replace six former buildings.
Waterman were involved from early design development and worked closely with Eric Parry Architects to develop an integrated structural/façade backing system to provide a substrate from which to support hand-set faience and Portland Stone.
The BCO stated; “This was a challenging re-development in a very sensitive location. Internally the building delivers simple efficient floor plates, a strong environmental performance and maximises the benefit of views along Piccadilly. Externally the design is brave and sensitive in equal measure and the positioning of the entrance has transformed a once unloved pedestrian cut-through into an integrated part of the urban streetscape.”
One Eagle Place is one of many projects that Waterman are involved in for The Crown Estate’s extensive St James’s portfolio.
