LONDON - The historic Centre Point tower is an exceptional example of architecture completed in 1967. Originally built as a speculative office building, it now stands as a historically significant building that has been designated a Grade II listed building in the English Heritage Archive. Currently undergoing a rennovation, and a change from office to residential space, this tour allowed access behind the scenes of the building.
The presentations provided a glimpse into the team’s vision of engaging with the public space with a “heritage-led approach” to the retrofit, and illustrate how Centre Point has the “potential to really anchor this section of Oxford Street,” and “engage with the city at large in a unique way,” said Gavin Miller, Partner for Rick Mather Architects.

After presentations, delegates were led on a tour of the mezzanine and the link bridge to see where the future square around Centre Point will come to life once the building’s retrofit is complete. The proposed square will connect with the growing tube station, and really provide a strong relationship between building and space.
