Location: W1F 0SD
Client: Soho Estates
Project Year: 2016
Cost: Over £2mOur plans for the major redevelopment of Walker’s Court will turn this tired area of Soho into a dynamic series of spaces that embody both the theatrical nature of the site and the local history of the conservation area.
The 50,000 sqft scheme will feature a purpose-built theatre, boutique shops, nightclubs and bars, plus residential apartments and offices for Soho Estates.
Historic plot widths and varied building heights will replace the post-war, lateral development of the site. Selected buildings will be restored and the historical plot widths reintroduced and clad in a variety of brickwork - both glazed and textured, creating a striking and modern aesthetic that simultaneously reveals glimpses of the site’s historic past.
New and restored bridge links will improve the Court’s connectivity with Soho, and the iconic Raymond Revuebar signage will be reinstated, with integrated pixels of colour below revealing a changing façade of light and texture.
