Greycoat Stores Building

London based architecture studio SPPARC has received planning consent for Greycoat Stores, a 78,000 sq ft flagship mixed-use destination development in Westminster London, maintaining the practice’s impressive consent success rate.

SPPARC has designed the scheme for RE Capital, the pan-European investment, development and asset management company.

Located at 10 Greycoat Place, the approved plans will see the building repositioned to deliver flexible office space spread across eight floors with private terraces. In addition, it will have ample amenities including 5,000 sq ft of retail and leisure facilities on the ground and lower ground floors, and a 4,000 sq ft restaurant. The building will be built to the highest sustainability standards to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating, as well as Wired-score Platinum and Wellness Certifications.

Greycoat Stores is a former warehouse of The Army & Navy Co-operative Society Ltd whose distinctive premises and stores form a key part of the identity, history and townscape of Westminster.

The existing 1950s alterations to the building’s principal façade fronting Greycoat Place detract from the enormous potential that the site offers to this vibrant and prominent junction. The development will see the original Victorian building celebrated, restored and reimagined including the addition of a bold replacement façade that has been influenced by the decorative playfulness of the original elevation and a modern two-storey addition at roof level. The proposed roof extension recently won the Tekla BIM structural design award.

Construction is expected to start in September 2021 with completion anticipated in the first half of 2023.

Principal and SPPARC Founder, Trevor Morriss says:

“The ambition for this proposal is to produce an exceptional scheme influenced by the building’s fascinating history to become a recognisable and welcome high-quality addition to the varied architectural character of the area. SPPARC has adopted innovative architectural techniques to generate the original design concepts for the building that reflect and take influence from the heritage of the original 1890’s façade sadly lost during the late 1950’s, to evolve an architectural composition of beauty and merit whilst respecting and responding to the inherent limitations of the location including the surrounding residential and educational neighbours.”
