Park Street, Borough

Client: United St Saviour's Charity

This complex refurbishment project involved a complete overhaul of the external fabric and an internal reconfiguration of a terrace of flats and retail shops on the edge of the vibrant Borough Market at London Bridge. Situated at the intersection of Stoney Street and Park Street, the scheme has re-invigorated 4 street fronting units with new eye-catching shopfronts designed in keeping with the aesthetic of the existing terrace, thus creating a stunning transformation to the site. Residential dwellings above the retail units have been successfully reconfigured and renovated to drive value from private-rent in this highly desirable central London location.

Often used as a film set, most recently for the third Bridget Jones’s Diary film, it was crucial for Park Street to achieve a high quality finish. It was also important for the street to retain its historical feel, evocative of its 19th century streetscape but in a modern setting.  The flats above the street were in a dilapidated condition but by maximising their potential, bptw created 3 new apartments and conducted minor renovation works to 4 others that are now able to be rented privately, generating a sustainable income for client United St Saviour’s Charity.
