Asia House, Lime Street
Client: Beltane Asset Management
This project involved the comprehensive refurbishment of a five-storey office building in the City of London. The proposals included major restoration of the front facade’s faience work (which suffered from progressive Regent Street disease), a reconfigured entrance reception, the re-imaging of the original oval-shaped core and the construction of two new storeys at roof level. The site lies on the periphery of the Leadenhall Conservation Area, in the heart of the City, and the brief was to return this handsome building to the financial and insurance letting market. The property offers unique, high-quality office space, whilst retaining its ‘warehouse’ aesthetic.
