Working with The Crown Estate, DSDHA has developed a proposal for 33-35 Piccadilly, to create a new, exemplar retail and office building. The design features finely-crafted and highly articulated elevations, finished with Portland stone, and linking in scale to neighbouring buildings.

The four facades address Piccadilly and Wren’s Grade I Listed St. James’s Church to the south, Swallow Street (connecting to Regent Street) to the west, Vine Street to the north, and to the east Piccadilly Place, adjacent to Norman Shaw’s Listed Piccadilly Hotel. 

The scheme will replace a post-war office building, known as Airwork House, and it will offer retail on all of its elevations, as well as a new entrance to its commercial accommodation on the corner of Vine Street and Swallow Street. 

The tall, light and open street frontages will encourage activity at ground level, enhancing the quality of the urban realm and offering a sense of pause opposite Wren’s church, on fast-paced Piccadilly.

The building is designed with sustainability in mind, aspiring to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating for the office areas.
