WilkinsonEyre completes office building in the heart of Soho

WilkinsonEyre has completed a seven storey office building located on Great Pulteney Street, in the centre of the Soho Conservation Area. The new £9.5m building, for client F&C Property Asset Management, replaces an outdated 1960s building and provides more than 3,000 sq m (33,000 sq ft) of flexible, efficient and light-filled office space.

The design of the façade has been informed by the street context of 20th century office blocks and terraced Georgian townhouses, while the rear elevation is characterised by an abstract arrangement of projecting window bays on a white glazed brick wall. The curved top floor and roof profile visually reduces the building's mass from the street. The project includes Finial Response by Cinimod Studio, a 20-metre installation of contemporary 'street railings' with responsive LED elements which react to passers-by.
