St Giles Circus
On Site

The restoration, refurbishment and extension of seven buildings along Denmark Street, formally Tin Pan Alley, a Soho street with an enduring legacy in London's music history. Sited within the Denmark Street Conservation area, the four Grade II and Grade II* listed houses and three warehouses accommodates a mixture of private residential, affordable housing and retail within a series of small interventions. The 17th century facades, ailing structure and original internal details are to be sensitively restored to their former grandeur.

 

A new timber pavilion with an exposed, twisting truss adapts to the geometries of the site and connects the existing buildings that surround it with a yard and terrace. Below, the existing linked building basement levels are adopted to form a stepped ‘auditorium' with a dropped stage at the centre, leading on to a newly formed restaurant and live music venue.
