The current 1930’s elevation to Marylebone High Street reflects the style of its age and is distinctive in the primarily Edwardian context of Marylebone High Street. In contrast the 1960’s extension to the rear is of inappropriate scale in Beaumont Mews. The project provides an opportunity to replace this large scale building with a development of more appropriate scale, typology and active street frontage.
The design solution proposes that the 7 storey frontage is retained and 2-3 storey scale houses are introduced appropriate to the mews. Between these givens a stepped section makes the gradual transition between the two. Planning permission was granted in June 2013 and the project is under construction.
