Exciting news! Woodhouse are undertaking extensive works on 7 floors of a Grade II listed building located on Horseferry Road, Westminster.
Check out our latest updates on this transformation
This beautiful old building was built in 1912 as a lodging house and shelter for destitute homeless boys. The red lamp that used to hang from the corner of the roof over the street, shining as a beacon of hope and help for those in need, gave it it’s former name: ‘The Red Lamp’. In the early 1970s and 1990s a significant amount of work was completed on the site, with only the front facade remaining from the original construction.
Watch the walkthrough of the space before we started work
Today, an overseas High Net Worth Individual (HNWI) has sought to reposition this dilapidated building to first class offices, providing modern, attractive and flexible office accommodation for the Westminster area, and Woodhouse have been commissioned for the design and construction of them.
The proposed works will span 7 floors, with the aim of refurbishing them to a high quality and vastly improved experience for tenants, including features such as new terraces, end of journey facilities, showers, and a new double-height reception, all complimented by light and modern finishes whilst retaining a sense of the building’s history. Sustainability is at the heart of this project and the works will be up to a BREEAM ‘excellent’ standard to ensure that works will not have any negative environmental, social or economic impact.
We can’t wait to see this project develop into the final result!
