20-22 Shelton Street

London, UK

20-22 Shelton Street is a four-storey brick warehouse building on the Mercers Company’s Covent Garden Estate, previously used by the Urdang performing arts academy. The warehouse, part of a late 19th century brewery complex on Langley Street and Shelton Street, was much altered over the years, yet contributes positively to the character of the Covent Garden Conservation Area and the Seven Dials Conservation Area.

Our conversion reinstates the structural integrity of the warehouse and the architectural expression of the elevations, reopening in-filled windows and repairing elements of the façades to provide retail on the ground floor, a restaurant in the basement and offices on the upper floors. We retained the roof structure and parapet heights, the upper floors and the fine brick-vaulted basement below 16-18 Shelton Street with its York stone floor and decorative cast-iron columns.

On the Langley Street frontage, a series of new structural brick arches retains the principle of vaulted openings. On the Shelton Street frontage, display windows at ground level are symmetrically arranged about the central pediment of the loading bay and the office entrance is incorporated within the westernmost opening.
