Paddington Basin has been described as a new quarter for central London. The revitalized basin, set around Merchant Square, has drawn both office workers and property owners and has established itself as a premier office and residential location. Merchant Square is the final phase of a transformation that has already delivered a series of new buildings, landscaping and canal bridges.
The new development regenerates a previously unused waterside location adjacent to one of London's main public transport nodes, which sits only 12 minutes walk from Oxford Street. Merchant Square is part of a larger master plan for the area, one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe, covering eight acres of London's west end.
This 6-building, mixed-use residential and office development consists of approximately 1.8 million square feet. We serve as design architect for Building A-C and architect-of-record for five of the six buildings. Mossessian & Partners serves as design architect for Buildings E and F. The Kalyvides Partnership from London is the master planner and architect of record for Building D.
