Development Manager Alchemi Group with Singapore’s largest private property developer, Far East Orchard Limited, have joint ventured together for their first foray into London’s private residential market.
The Edwardian, Grade II Listed Westminster Fire Station (WFS) at 4 Greycoat Place is being refashioned into a mixed-use boutique development. With concept and interiors by Studio L, London and architecture by Openstudio Architects (OSA), the two studios thoughtfully focused on creating a respectful marriage between the historic architecture of the Fire Station and the contemporary architecture of the new building coined the “Station House”. Both retain the stylistic distinctions of their respective eras whilst mindfully integrating the architecture and interiors of both buildings.
The original Fire Station will house a new 5,000 ft2 restaurant with Michelin starred chef, Atul Kochhar in residence and six residential apartments from floors one through four. The Station House will contain eleven apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms.
Each home is unique, ensuring that all apartments have been crafted to create thoughtful, bespoke apartments.
The restaurant has entry through the original carriage doors of The Fire Station and much of the original character has been retained including the archetypal Fireman’s Pole and ‘Watch Room’.
The beautiful new resident's courtyard, created by James Lee Design is located behind the Fire Station melding the distinction between the two buildings on the ground floor. This shared amenity creates a more intimate and private space for the residents.
Paragon Interserve began the fit out in June 2018 with completion in 2020.
