CHAPEL STREET

About the Design

The proposed development is for part demolition of the existing pub building at No.48 Chapel Street and erection of a mix 3, 5, 6, 7, 9 storeys building over the existing basement floor lines, in order to accommodate 52 hotel rooms with a ground floor café / restaurantcommercial unit and ancillary and storage areas at basement floor 

 

 

          Key Design Principles: 

 

High quality redevelopment of site within the area.The proposed volumes will architecturally relate to existing neighbouring buildings in terms of heights, architectural details, materials and finishes, overshadowing and privacy. Proposed development will infill this corner plot and it will create an adequate architectural insertion between the residential buildings on Chapel Street and Wallace Court on Old Marylebone Road

                  The maximum height of the proposed building will be 9

storeys which will step down to 3 storeys towards No. 38-47A Chapel Street. Thus, green roofs and green walls will be created within the set-backs and it will minimise the impact of the proposal over the existing residential units within the neighbouring buildings. 

The sixth and the eighth floor levels will be well set back from the main elevations and they will have a minimum impact on the streets appearance. No interventions will be made on the existing London Plane Tree apart from small trimming interventions. 

There will be taken all the necessary measures in order to fully protect the tree and its roots of any construction interventions that may damage it. The tree has been incorporated in the design and the area around the tree will be protected, by proposing permeable pavement as finishing material.  

The new proposed building will mainly be constructed within the projection lines of the existing basement, in order to avoid any intersection with the tree’s roots.
