One Eagle Place, London by Eric Parry Architects
London and Kula Lumpur-based architectural practice, Eric Parry Architects, has designed the One Eagle Place project. Completed in 2014, the building is located in central London, England.
St James’s is a unique part of central Westminster. It differs from the other areas of the West End – Mayfair, Soho and Covent Garden – in its remarkable architectural richness due to its high concentration of listed buildings.
The development site is bounded by Piccadilly to the north, Jermyn Street to the south, Eagle Place to the west and Regent Street to the east and straddles two conservation areas: Regent Street and St James’s.
The revamped building includes well-designed retail frontages, a thriving office environment and luxury living within St James’s.
The scheme involved the redevelopment of an entire urban block, sensitively merging retained and refurbished buildings with a striking new façade to provide modern offices.
The scheme also includes 16 luxury apartments within One Eagle Place, facing onto Jermyn Street, and within the refurbishment of the neighbouring building at 27 Regent Street.
The architect’s vision was to create a building that forms part of a comprehensive approach within a regenerated urban block, at the same time adding a finely crafted and constructed facade of contemporary architectural merit and interest.
The design for the development incorporated artwork as integral elements from the early concept stages. The building features two prominent pieces of public art by the Turner Prize winner and distinguished Royal Academicians Richard Deacon and Stephen Cox, which enhance the new public realm and help provide a strong identity for the building and its occupiers.
The eco-chic building boasts rainwater harvesting, ground source cooling, solar collectors and photovoltaic panels.
