Broadwick House sits on an island site in the Soho Conservation Area, surrounded by a mix of buildings of all ages. The building respects the general eaves levels of the adjacent structures, with the bulk of the accommodation filling the footprint of the site. Where the neighbouring constructions set back to form atic storeys, RSH+P have responded by adding two floors nestled under a distictive arching roof. The ground level contains the reception, next to the cores, and the remainder of the floor houses a restaurant. On the first to fourth floors, the full height glazing is shielded from the Sun and overheating by grids of fine aluminium louvers. Two service cores have been placed on the Western side of the building. The Southern one contains an escape stair and toilets, whilst the Northern one houses an escape stair and two fully glazed lifts, facing onto Broadwick Street, which animate this major elevation and, in conjunction with the roof, give the project its unique identity.
