About this project

Vincent Square is a desirable residential square, just a stones throw away from the Houses of Parliament and located in a sensitive conservation area. The practice was commissioned in 2003 to design a scheme for the site of the old Rochester Row Police Station complex facing Vincent Square in the heart of Westminster, London. The scheme includes the old Magistrates Court and the Police Station building, both listed buildings. It involves the construction of four new buildings and provides 70 new apartments. The design for the site almost mirrors the development of the square in miniature, containing both buildings of a larger scale and those of a domestic nature. It has been planned as a series of four individual buildings. These roughly follow the historic boundaries within the original block. Each of the two listed buildings facing Rochester Row has been converted into residential apartments and has been extended at the rear to provide views onto Vincent Square. Two new buildings have been constructed between the two listed structures, one facing Vincent Square with apartments overlooking the park, and the other facing Rochester Row, which contains 21 affordable appartments.
