30 Buckingham Gate

This project presented an amazing opportunity to remodel a tired 1980’s building, located close to Buckingham Palace, into a bespoke Headquarters for our prestigious client.

Chapman Architects were commissioned to produce a scheme that would transform the existing building into a modern, high quality and efficient, bespoke office building, commensurate with our prominent client’s standing within their business sector.
The project comprised of the total strip-out of the existing building, taking it back to its bare concrete frame and delivering a new headquarters that sits calmly within the Birdcage Walk Conservation Area, London SW1.

The exterior of the building was remodelled and enlarged where possible. The new space was not only refurbished to a Cat A standard, with the replacement of all central plant, equipment and lifts but was also completely interior designed to suit our clients very unique brief which provided an opportunity to showcase Caledonia’s historic shipping heritage. As well as the interiors, we landscaped a number of new terrace areas to provide outside break out-spaces and an ‘outside room’ that’s doubles as a function and meeting area.
