The proposal for 9 Marylebone Lane is to create a 22 unit new-build high-quality residential building comprising of lower ground, ground, and seven upper floors, with large setbacks incorporating roof terraces.
The building will have a strong sense of local identity, which captures the prestige of this address as a residential neighbourhood, and contribute positively and sensitively to it’s historic and urban setting.
The building will be dressed in a warm and reflective glazed terracotta external cladding with a subtle variation in colour and shade to add visual interest and complexity. The tone of the terracotta to the main body of the building is a warm red that changes when viewed from different positions or in different light.
To the rear of the building the cladding will be a white reflective glazed terracotta inspired by the white glazed brick courtyards of Victorian London.
Towards the top of the building, where the cladding will become readable behind Stratford House from Stratford Place, the tonality of the cladding will become further muted and neutral, with less degrees of reflectance and faience, in order to maintain the calm and quiet backdrop to the Listed Building.
