London based real estate developer, Seaforth, has signed a contract with BAM Construction to deliver the £110m refurbishment of Space House, a landmark Grade II listed building set across two interconnected buildings in Covent Garden.
Designed by Richard Seifert & Partners, Space House was completed in 1968 and is well known for its innovative architecture and brutalist concrete cruciform façade. The building was first occupied by the Civil Aviation Authority and will now be brought back to life with an extensive redevelopment to deliver a highly sustainable, smart building designed to BREEAM Outstanding.
Squire and Partners
has led the redesign of the buildings which will include the construction of two new floors of office accommodation on top of the existing 15 storey tower, a top floor extension to the interconnected eight storey block and reconfiguration of the internal cores and basement levels.
