Project details

This undertaking encompasses the intricate process of demolishing and reconstructing both the substructure and superstructure.

Nestled within the vibrant surroundings of London’s West End, the project site sits proudly on Dean Street, a quaint single-lane carriageway road at the northern end of Soho.

At the heart of our client’s vision lies the ambitious proposal for the demolition and redevelopment of 91-92 Dean Street, Diadem Court, and 10-13 Great Chapel Street. The aim is to craft a distinctive visitor accommodation hostel (sui generis) with a capacity of approximately 750 beds. This involves the erection of a multi-faceted building spanning basement, ground, and three to four upper storeys, complete with essential amenities such as cycle parking, servicing facilities, and rooftop plant installations.

It’s a bold step toward revitalising this urban space, marrying modern functionality with thoughtful design.
