Refurbishment of Mayfair’s 25 Hanover Square Begins

Refurbishment of Mayfair’s 25 Hanover Square Begins
02 June 2023

Alterations to a seven-storey premium office building at 25 Hanover Square have begun, completing the regeneration of a prominent corner site in London’s Mayfair.

The project will comprehensively refurbish the existing office, including the ground floor reception area. Designed for Morgan Capital by Basha-Franklin, the space features a dual-aspect showcase of art through large, anti-reflective picture windows that frame views from and into the building. Views across the garden square give visitors a peek into Mayfair’s Conservation Area.

The existing basement has been rearranged to house new tanks to enable sprinklers to be placed throughout the building. The project also includes premium workspace, and a repositioned terrace on the 7th floor overlooking the square. Sustainable, high-performance materials will be used throughout, while the building’s original materials will be reused and re-purposed. 

A new feature staircase will promote interaction between floors, the daylight core framing views on every floor towards South London and the east.

The project was approved by Westminster City Council in January 2023.

Alex Franklin, Director of Architecture at Basha-Franklin, said: “The entire square has been regenerated in recent years meaning it hasn’t been accessible to the public and the local communities for some time. This, however, is the final piece of the puzzle. This is a future-forward building in every respect – from the crafted, flexible interior layouts to technical innovation and our choice of newly emerging materials.”

Alex Morgan, Asset & Development Manager, Morgan Capital, added: “The proposals for 25 Hanover Square will restore the building’s relationship with the square while achieving the highest possible standards for design and sustainability. Through close dialogue with WCC Planning and Design Officers, we’re delighted to have secured a considerably seamless planning consent for what will be one of the most inspiring and people-focused workplaces in central London.”
