Derwent LondonCharlotte Street, Fitzrovia


The construction of a modern seven storey mixed use scheme providing nine high specification residential apartments, two affordable units and retail space in a busy part of Fitzrovia.

The works began with the excavation and formation of a new basement followed by the construction of a reinforced concrete frame and the installation of geometrically challenging zinc clad penthouses. The building boasts a contemporary brickwork façade utilising Petersen bricks from Denmark.

Within a very tight footprint it was necessary to construct loading gantries to two sides of the building to provide access to build the façades and enable Knight Harwood to construct the project in a safe and organised manner.
