n2 & Nova Place SW1

This complex of three buildings forms the final part of a master plan on Victoria Street, London SW1, for LandSec. The design comprises a variety of different types of workspace housed in three quite different buildings. n2, a steel-framed mid-rise office block, gained planning consent in 2016. Nova Place, an L-Shaped figure, acts as the edge of a city block: comprising the listed Victoria Palace Theatre; its new fly-tower; the neighbouring Duke of York Public House; Sutton House (a listed 1930s Pawn Brokers that will be reconstructed); and a 4 story ventilation shaft serving the Victoria Line tube station beneath our site (the project is sat above a number of complex Underground Constraints, including a number of sewers). These proposals represent the final iteration of a series of designs undertaken by Lynch Architects for this site since 2007, and supersedes the planning consents gained by Lynch Architects for these sites in 2009, 2012 and 2016. An East-West pedestrian route runs from Belgravia to Cardinal Place, with a series of new public spaces designed in collaboration with muf architecture/art and J+L Gibbons. This design gained planning consent in July 2019, and construction commenced in 2020.
