Broadwick House

Broadwick House - Occupation

On completion, the building was let to Ford Motor Company as its London design studio. Broadwick House was especially chosen by Ford who wanted a building that demonstrated a clear and sophisticated design approach, offering a stimulating environment for the Ford creative team. In addition, Ford include Broadwick House as one of the most environmentally efficient on their extensive international letting portfolio. The upper and lower ground floors have been turned into Yauatcha, the latest project by restauranteur Alan Yau, creator of the Wagamama restaurant chain.

In creating an unashamedly contemporary landmark in the heart of Soho, the building has lifted the profile and enriched the life of this historic neighbourh

The tripartite composition of a setback public ground floor, the stack of office floors and the curved roof-top studio, along with the clear expression of the service and circulation components, have generated a high degree of legibility for both the building users and the public.

Environmental sustainability and low energy consumption formed a key part of the brief. The building incorporates a passive chilled water ceiling system, as well as blinds and louvres to control solar gain and glare to the working spaces.
