Walmar House – 296 Regent Street

Walmar House is located in the heart of Central London and occupies the full city block from Great Castle Street to Margaret Street.

Originally the building was constructed in phases between 1916 and 1922.

RFK proposals unifies the distinct phases of the original building, by demolishing the rear of the site to create a new core, rationalised and unified floor plates as well additional office accommodation.

The final design provides 80 000sqft of contemporary accommodation whilst retaining and restoring the original facade.

The building has been fully let to Compagnie Financiere -Richmont SA, owners of luxury brands such as Cartier, Dunhill, Mont Blanc, Chloe and others.

The project also included the redevelopment of 13/14 Great Castle Street to create 4 new luxury apartments.

At street level 4 new retail units were created now let to Pret-a-Manger, Hotel Chocolat, T2 and North Face.
