Burlington Gate in Mayfair W1, the latest development by award-winning Native Land, is located in Mayfair’s luxury quarter and only moments away from the exclusive boutiques, bespoke tailoring, world-class art galleries and fine hotels and restaurants of Savile Row and New Bond Street. Burlington Gate offers 42 premium residences and penthouses, a dedicated concierge that provides 24-hour service and 25,000ft of gallery space. Led by Native Land, the development is a joint venture with Hotel Properties Limited (HPL) and Amcorp Properties Berhad (Amcorp).
Inspired by Mayfair’s rich cultural heritage and offering the quintessence of fine living at one the world’s most desirable addresses, Burlington Gate represents an unparalleled and outstanding blend of sophistication, craftsmanship and innovative architecture and styling. The contemporary new building is designed by Royal Academician Lord Rogers’ acclaimed architectural practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. The development, which is a modern interpretation of the surrounding Georgian architecture, displays technical confidence and provides impressive new public realm including the first new arcade in Mayfair since the 1930s, connecting Old Burlington Street with Cork Street. Burlington Gate both references and pays tribute to the Georgian architectural language and form that is deeply rooted in the Mayfair cityscape while also playing a major role in the regeneration of London’s most established art gallery district and one of its main cultural hubs.
Reflecting its location in Mayfair’s premier destination for collectors and art connoisseurs, the development explores the concept of living in an art space and has been crafted beautifully with all the grace, elegance and light of the most inspiring gallery. The new arcade is one of the project’s highlights, providing a vibrant and dynamic public space as well as a route through from Old Burlington Street to Cork Street and space at street level for a curated selection of five galleries.
Residences are accessed through a private gated entrance in the arcade. On entering, Burlington Gate immediately reveals its true modernity. Two elegant, linear buildings are connected by a single translucent core that allows daylight into the heart of the development.
The residents’ reception is located on a mezzanine floor that overlooks the atrium where daylight lands on the smooth surfaces of the building’s interior architecture.
Light-filled airy interiors feature tailor-made design, mixing traditional craft with superior innovation. All residences are enhanced by bespoke detailing, from the expertly-crafted door handles and joinery, to the custom-made Bulthaup kitchens and bathrooms. Residents also benefit from a gymnasium and a spa offering state-of-the-art equipment.
Completion is expected in summer 2017.
