One New Burlington Place Opens

One New Burlington Place is the latest project to be completed as part of the regeneration of London's Regent Street by The Crown Estate, which is enhancing Regent Street as a destination for fashion, lifestyle and business.

The new building, which sits behind two retained Grade II listed facades, and incorporates a stunning new glazed facade fronting New Burlington Place, provides a mix of flagship retail and commercial space alongside two landscaped rooftop terraces designed by Gillespies.

The roof terraces - accessed from the 5th and 6th floors - provide a generously large extension to the workplace and offer tenants and visitors a rare opportunity to meet, sit and relax in tranquil landscaped gardens high above the city. The terraces provide an accessible function space bordered by areas devoted to bio-diverse planting, striking an appropriate balance between planting and seating capacity. Contemporary low stone seat wall planters line the terrace, featuring species of plants that flower at different times of the year to encourage a variety of insects and birds to the area.

A series of extensive bio-diverse sedum roofs and green walls help to tackle the risk of urban flooding and improve insulation as well increasing biodiversity.

The drive for sustainability has affected every aspect of the design, and the building has gained BREEAM excellent.
