Description of The Saint Martins Lofts

The Saint Martins Lofts is a development in the former Central Saint Martins Art School building on Charing Cross Road in London WC2.

The development was completed in 2014.

The flats are above the iconic Foyles book shop. Foyles was founded by brothers William and Gilbert Foyle in 1903, moved to Charing Cross Road in 1906 and celebrated its 110th anniversary in 2013. Foyles' flagship store on Charing Cross Road is one of the capital's most well known literary landmarks.

The Saint Martins Lofts is a development of exceptional loft apartments in this iconic building in the heart of Soho with magnificent south-facing views over the West End and towards the Houses of Parliament. The loft apartments will be housed in the top four floors. From duplexes with stunning double height, original style windows to lateral apartments with large terraces and penthouses with commanding views over London, each of the thirteen generously proportioned apartments will have a contemporary loft-style interior, finished to an immaculate standard.

St Martins Lofts is a joint venture between Aquila House Holdings Ltd and Noved Property Group.

Foyles' new flagship bookstore on Charing Cross Road has won the BREEAM 2015 retail award as the highest scoring retail fit-out of the year with an impressive score of 73.4%, reports Mace.

The project involved in the renovation of the dilapidated Saint Martin’s College into a light and stylish 37,000 sq. ft. bookshop, which shall be the largest bookstore to be built in the UK this century.

The building was designed with sustainability as a high priority. This included reducing the energy consumption in the building through thermally upgrading the retained façade, installing LED lighting and low carbon air source heat pumps. Additionally grey-water recycling, green roofs, and PV panels were integrated into the development to further boost its sustainability credentials.

Harrison Keating and Steve Kellett championed site sustainability management, including BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) certification. The construction process saw 99% of all timber FSC certified, 97% of all materials sustainably sourced and 95% of waste diverted from landfill.

The team also scored 41 in the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) assessment, which further helps towards achieving an 'excellent' BREEAM rating. Recognising the key issues at the outset of the project provided opportunities to design in solutions which reduced the environmental impact of the building. The team was committed to going beyond best practise as both a considerate constructor and through its efforts to minimise construction site impacts, aided by bespoke monitoring tools, and their ISO14001 management system compliance.

The BREEAM assessment board commented: “The flagship store for Foyles is an exemplar retail store that has been built carefully and considerately using materials that are low polluting, have low embodied energy and are responsibly sourced.”

Mace Business Unit Director Ged Simmonds commented: "The team delivered a fantastic result on a very challenging refurbishment project. I am delighted that this has recognised with such a prestigious award.
