1 & 2 Stephen Street, London

This scheme provides an example as to what can be achieved with creative thought, vision and attention to detail. It also demonstrates the importance of having an understanding of where to invest - and where not to. Prior to this refurbishment being undertaken, this double fronted building, known as Central Cross, presented a tired and uninspiring face onto one of the Capital's busiest streets. The rejuvenated and re-branded 1 & 2 Stephen Street now has a distinct identity and character, and the refurbished floors set the template for the future transformation of the whole building. Derwent London acquired the 66,500 sq ft complex on Tottenham Court Road in 2010.

This late 1970s development was built as the headquarters of EMI, as well as housing retail space and a cinema along its 400 foot long street frontage. The surrounding area is set to benefit from the opening of the Cross-rail station in 2018 and the creation of a new square at St Giles Circus. . The reworking of the street frontage has unified the two buildings and created an animated base to the original monumental building, and the ground floor has been completely remodelled. Intelligent intervention at lower and upper levels has overcome problematic structural challenges and has created significant new space.

The design for the building’s redevelopment was delivered in multiple phases which allowed existing tenants to remain in occupation throughout the construction works. All the customer touch points have been re-worked and executed with the user journey and experience at the forefront of the mind. The workspace provides a simple but incredibly flexible space within which the occupier can stamp its own mark. Two new and enlarged reception areas have been created and an impressive five metre high glass and perforated stainless steel façade to the ground floor building perimeter has been developed.

The former recording studios, loading bay and basement car park have been converted into Cat A office space. Three new roof terraces provide the occupiers with sought after outdoor meeting and socialising space. The much improved environment with its broad mix of office, retail and leisure will go some way to restore Tottenham Court Road’s status as one of central London's prime thoroughfares.
