Plans approved for remodelling of 127 Kensington High Street

20 12 2017

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) has approved our plans for the renovation and remodelling of 127 Kensington High Street.

The proposal remodels the bleak 1970s building to transform the quality of its architecture, its public realm and its internal working environment. They will also improve connectivity to Kensington High Street Underground station through the creation of a new retail arcade, linking to Wrights Lane.

New elevations of pale white brick and Portland stone will replace the existing concrete panels and the historic street line on Wrights Lane will be restored.

The proposals retain Boots as the centre piece of an enhanced retail offer. Office accommodation, doubled in scale, offer the highest quality of environmental performance and space planning flexibility.

Keb Garavito Bruhn, Partner: “We sought to deliver an appropriate architectural response to this prominent site on Kensington High Street and thereby improving its overall aesthetic interest and connectivity to the Underground station nearby. We are pleased our vision has been endured by the council.”
