The Broadway SW1
This landmark project stands in the place of the Old Scotland Yard, an iconic British site in the heart of Westminster, between Victoria & St James’s Park. Comprising of 6 individual towers, it boasts desirable views overlooking Big Ben, the London Eye & Westminster Abbey, made up of luxury office spaces, high end residential & ground floor retail/dining outlets. Given it’s size, The Broadway is becoming a little town of it’s own, branded as London’s Wellbeing Capital Orchard Place is set to be a sustainable lifestyle hub for all budding Londoners, with the option to work live & play all within the same space.
Our contract was for the full fit-out of the high spec front of house areas, which were uniquely designed by Squire & Partners, for the client Northacre & main contractor, Multiplex. Split into East & West podiums & then again in Residential & Office, the majority of our work was across 4 large reception areas.
The residential reception was one of our most innovatively challenging to date, with 5 metre high, jointless, fire rated 3D timber panelling to the perimeter of the vast space. In addition to these gigantic wall panels, we designed & manufactured bespoke solid brass frames to the feature meeting rooms, complete with pivot hinge, handmade pull handle & decorative laminated glazing. Another key element to this high end commercial fit out was the million pound sub-contract of bespoke poured terrazzo, which was mixed & poured on site to create a one of a kind finish through the ground floor areas.
The star of the show are the unique reception desks, which are clad in our bespoke, lacquered brass finish, vein matched statuario & luxurious mottled leather. The large desk spans nearly 5 metres in length & is complimented by a secondary, smaller desk to it’s left.
Additionally to the Residential front of house areas were the Office receptions, which consisted of a much darker interior scheme, complete with black fire rated wall panelling, contemporary polish plaster featured & a blackened mild steel & leather feature desk. Similarly to the Residential spaces, this also has a poured terrazzo floor, this time in a striking white with contrasting black marble chippings.
Further to the high spec reception fit-out, we also completed the estate management facilities, 6 stair cores, marble clad WC’s & meeting room joinery. The project began in 2021 & completed in the summer of 2022.
