- Design development: 16 weeks
- Construction: 20 weeks
Fabrix London purchased the property in November 2020 and Dthree were tasked with delivering Fabrix London and Studio Fabrix’s design guidance to create a unique townhouse feel while providing the modern amenities expected by the contemporary occupier.
The building, located in the heart of Soho, is home to world-renowned Soho Screening Rooms – Soho’s only remaining independent screening room. The refurbishment needed to be sympathetic to this while ensuring the building was fully upgraded with new power, lighting, heating, cooling and high-quality finishes throughout. Original features, hidden by previous tenant fit outs have been carefully restored and enhanced so the building preserves its boutique townhouse character.
The refurbishment works were incredibly complex, Dthree had to undertake construction works that included a full power upgrade to the building, while keeping disruption to the Soho Screening Rooms to a minimum.
Following the strip out phase of the project, hidden features were revealed which added complexity to the project but provided further opportunity to enhance and showcase the character of the building, for example exposed pitched roofs that were boarded over but have now been opened and revitalised.
Result / Final outcome:
The result is that No 15 D’Arblay Street has been recreated into one of Soho’s most desirable buildings. The meticulous attention to detail employed during renovation has ensured the finishes do not only suit the building’s rare warehouse atmosphere, but also makes sure the building’s many modern amenities are perfectly suited for any contemporary occupier.
The building has already had a significant amount of interest from occupiers who are considering the space both on the basis of a single occupier, or letting the space on a floor-by-floor basis.
Fabrix London enjoyed working with the Dthree team who were dynamic and responsive to the challenges that occur when sensitively dealing with projects of this nature.
