No.1 Grosvenor Square

Following an invited competition, the Lodha Group (a major Indian developer) appointed Eric Parry Architects to lead on the design of their flagship London development at No. 1 Grosvenor Square.

With the relocation of a number of diplomatic missions, the scheme reflects the changing nature of the Mayfair area, reverting the site to residential use and repositions Grosvenor Square as the premiere Mayfair residential square.

Following detailed consultations with Westminster City Council and The Grosvenor Estate, a strategy of reconstruction has been developed by carefully recording and dismantling the most significant façades. Subsequent reconstruction enables minor adjustments to the building’s hierarchy, sensitive contemporary interventions and the provision of basement car parking, residential amenities and enables structural acoustic isolation and enhanced building envelope performance.

“Perhaps the most impressive thing about this design is that it appears to be ultra conservative, a straight facade retention of a dignified and familiar, if oversized, city block. But it is really nothing of the sort. Eric Parry Architects were able to disassemble the facades, store the components, restore the stone and brickwork, and then stretch and manipulate the elevations to accommodate better, or more appropriate, ceiling heights and proportions. On the Grosvenor Street side, the facades were also extensively remodelled to make them more suitable for apartment rather than office use. It’s a compliment to the architects that one can barely see what has changed.”
