Fitzroy Place named Mixed-use Project of the Year
8th December 2017
Fitzroy Place was named Mixed-use Project of the Year at yesterday’s AJ Architecture Awards, which celebrate design excellence in UK architecture.
‘The experience of the space is superb. I’ve found a new place in London to sit in’, enthused one of the judges about the public space at the heart of the project.
Fitzroy Place is the result of the collaboration between Sheppard Robson and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and it includes the regeneration of a city block in London’s West End, on a key site in the heart of Fitzrovia. The mixed-use project consists of 291 residential units (237 market and 54 affordable), two significant new office buildings, retail/restaurant space and community facilities all focused on a fully accessible new square at its centre, which is the first to be created in central London for more than 100 years.
The scheme replaces the former Middlesex Hospital yet retains its Grade II listed chapel while adding commercial and residential elements to create an office building, residential blocks and a new public space inspired by the variety of the streetscapes and frontages around the perimeter of the development.
