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 new build architecture of the newly coined “Station House”, yet retaining stylistic distinction in their own rights.
The Fire Station houses a restaurant on the ground and lower ground floors and six residential apartments from floors one through four. The Station House will contain eleven apartments’ ranging from one to three bedrooms and throughout the development, no two homes are the exactly alike, ensuring that all apartments have been crafted to create bespoke apartments.
The restaurant has entry through the original carriage doors of The Fire Station and offers 5,000/ft2 of retail space over two floors and much of the original character has been retained and will be refurbished; including the archetypal Fireman’s Pole and ‘Watch Room’.
The beautiful new courtyard is being created by James Lee Designs and will sit on the ground floor behind the Fire Station to create a more intimate and private space for the residents between the two buildings as a shared amenity and to help meld the distinction between the two buildings.
CBRE will have a marketing suite for the residences in their Bow Street office.
Davis Coffer Lyons will be marketing the restaurant.
