No.1 Regent Street

An iconic restoration

An architectural masterpiece marks the start of one of London’s most beautiful and famous retail streets. Built as a totem of the riches of British Columbia, the facades include intricate stone friezes of wood, grain, livestock, fish and vines. However, through successive changes of use, the building had slowly receded into the homogenous urban fabric of the West End.

The extensive restoration of No.1 Regent Street would offer a premium restaurant space in an area rich with gastronomic heritage. The singularity of the project required a unique approach and premium production.

With gold foiled strips akin to the painstaking restorative works and bespoke marbling papers inspired by fine cheese and meats and the beautiful original interiors, a Solander box contains three books; ‘A Love Affair with Food’ about the wealth of gastronomic history in the area, including key recipes from the past with still life photography and interviews with local culinary figures; ‘An Iconic Restoration’ on the story behind the building; and a simple specification with the practicalities.
