Baker Street

11 Baker Street replaces three addresses within an existing urban block to provide a cohesive development comprising office, retail and residential accommodation which integrates with the surrounding context.


The 7,000sqm office building facing Baker Street was constructed using a hybrid steel/concrete frame, where steel floor beams create an 18m clear span and ensure a completely column free floor space. Facades are constructed from precast structural concrete elements, which blur the traditional vertical lines of structure so that the building appears as a concrete and glass object in its own right.


To the rear, two residential blocks – one facing George Street and the other facing Portman Close – share a central landscaped courtyard garden. Residential materials relate more closely to the immediate neighbours with a mixture of brick, stone and glass creating contemporary elevations which sit comfortably in their surroundings.
