National Magazine House

Soho

EPR’s commended proposal for the refurbishment of National Magazine House upgrades and refurbishes an outdated 1970’s office building to provide Grade A workspace of the highest quality, with contemporary residential apartments on the 1st and 2nd floors and new ground floor retail.

Our scheme retains most of the existing structure and minimises disruption to the major ground floor retail activity. The existing hexagonal brick bays have been rationalised to a series of controlled planes that set back and terminate in a feature bay announcing the office entrance. 

The introduction of a new double height reception provides a prominent arrival experience worthy of a Grade A headquarters office building and a new retail unit at the end of the vista on Newburgh Street provides a much improved termination to the street and additional active frontage.

Each façade individually responds to its local vernacular, with the window cills, soffits, and reveals taking reference from the decorative and sculptural window design of Georgian and Edwardian architecture.
