The collaboration between Darling Associates and Dixon Jones was formed in 2012 for this project. Dixon Jones were instructed to prepare a planning application for the former BBC site at 35 Marylebone High Street and Darling Associates were responsible for the interior spatial planning and finishes. This included a façade retention to Marylebone High Street to create three stunning penthouses, fifteen exceptionally appointed apartments and five contemporary townhouses of impeccable specification.
In 2014, after planning consent was granted, the site was sold to The Royalton Group and after some rigorous interviews, Royalton decided to stick with the original design team to carry out some amendments to the scheme to suit the new client’s needs.
The residential apartments offer contemporary living with an abundance of light and space throughout the development.
The townhouses feature a beautiful, bespoke oak front door that opens into an impressive double-height entrance lobby. As you enter the main living space, you are bathed in light from the central atrium, which features a retractable glass roof. Three levels with living rooms and bedrooms face into this central space and a ‘sky bridge’, located on the top floor, links the two separate sides of the townhouse.
