Project Win Carmelite Street
Restore London are delighted to have won the £2.7M restoration & refurbishment works at the Grade II listed No.9 Carmelite Street, London. Engaged as Specialist Principal Contractor, Restore London package works will include samples, complicated scaffold erection, masonry & brickwork cleaning & restoration, new roof, fire escapes, flooring and a complex new M&E scheme.
Currently in use as commercial offices, the building was designed in 1893 by Hunt & Steward Architects and features red brick stone dressings in Tudor Gothic style. The Central Gothic entrance of a moulded ogee arch has fine carved stone insets including grotesque masks and armorial devices and features double panelled doors, half glazed with tracery and traceried fanlight. The similarity of this building and Sion College was at the insistence of the City Lands Committee which controlled development on behalf of the City Corporation & No 9 Carmelite Street forms a group with Sion College, Victoria Embankment.
This is a truly beautiful building which the Restore team are looking forward to sensitively restoring and repairing to the quality and standard that our clients have come to expect.
