The development, which has been created by architect Squire and Partners for Royal London Mutual Asset Management, has been ongoing since initial planning permission was granted in 2003. It will include new residential apartments in a restored mock-Georgian building, retail space and offices.
Jason Bruges Studio was appointed to the project in 2007 after being selected by the City of Westminster Public Art Advisory Panel. It was chosen because its previous work was sympathetic to Squire and Partners’ design approach, says Squire and Partners associate architect Philip Shears.
The public art installation will involve an animated lighting scheme in Dover Yard Alley. Shears says, ‘The artwork is a playful interpretation of pedestrian motion through the alley.’
Work on the alley began in January, and is due for completion in the next week after a few final adjustments, says Shears.
