Galliard Homes are set to transform the building back into a prestigious residential address. Occupying nine floors, from lower ground to eighth level, the new residences will range from 527 sqft up to 1,518 sqft in size. The building fronts onto Old Queen Street and Lewisham Street enabling Squire & Partners to design a scheme with windows overlooking both facades, creating open living spaces which have generous ceiling heights of up to 3 to 4 metres, and an extremely bright and airy ambience. The apartments will be built to a luxurious specification with bespoke interiors and joinery, luxurious designer kitchens and plush bathroom suites.
The larger apartments will have spacious drawing room, 8-10 seater formal dining area, kitchen/breakfast area and study/library. Some of the drawing rooms will incorporate the building’s deep bay windows creating distinctive living spaces rich in character. The master bedroom suites will have deep fitted wardrobes and luxurious bathroom suites. The duplexes will have entertaining rooms on one level and bedroom suites on the other. Features will include dramatic double height drawing rooms, 8-10 seater dining rooms and spacious bedroom suites.
The entrance foyer will be designed to have the ambience of a boutique hotel with marble flooring, concierge and feature lighting. The foyer will give access to the inner hall which provides staircase and lift access to all floors of the building. The development will have two spacious rooftop gardens/terraces, for the exclusive use of residents, which will provide views over Westminster and Whitehall.
