Soho Square is the comprehensive retrofit, refurbishment and extension of a listed Georgian townhouse, located within one of London’s most prestigious locations – the Soho Conservation Area, overlooking the gardens of Soho Square.

The scheme provides outstanding, contemporary Grade A workspaces whilst restoring many of the building’s original beautiful features. Through a comprehensive and considerate investigation into the historic fabric of the building, the design has transformed a formerly dilapidated, inaccessible building to provide a balance of open plan and private work spaces across 400sqm of accommodation.

The careful introduction of a modern glass lift now provides inclusive and accessible facilities, whilst enhancing users’ enjoyment of an important historic building. A contemporary yet historically sensitive timber roof extension serves to enhance the presence of the building within the square and creates additional, outstanding office space.

Since the scheme’s successful completion, Child Graddon Lewis has now been asked to inform and support the Soho Society’s campaign against the demolition threat of two buildings on the square, as currently proposed.
