Gibberd were appointed by Gracemark Investments to undertake full services for a new build multi-use development in the West-Ends prestigious Jermyn Street. The development included the demolition of existing buildings on the corner of Jermyn Street, Duke of York Street and Apple Tree Yard, whilst retaining and restoring the historic facade of 100 Jermyn Street.
The development houses two levels of basement in this tight London site which required the close co-ordination of the design team to ensure efficient use of space. Providing two levels retail space, five levels of office space and three luxury apartments.
The design of the facades was careful crafted to ensure a continuity with the existing Jermyn Street scene, whist a careful progression from stone to brickwork down Duke of York Street allowed a transition into St. James Square. A steel frame and precast facade panels were chosen as the tight constraints of this site would not allow for scaffolding. The facades were extensively tested at the Taylor Woodrow facilities to ensure that all systems were compliant and compatible before reaching site.
The development earned BREEAM very good, Code for Sustainable Homes level 3 and Secure by Design. It was developed to achieve excellent thermal properties and has a green roof, adding to central London's biodiversity and much needed water retention.
The construction was undertaken by Sisk, with whom Gibberd worked closely to ensure efficient progress. Gibberd also undertook the interior design of all office and common areas, creating a bespoke reception space access from Duke of York Street.
