Sheppard Robson’s design for the £145m redevelopment of the Trocadero site in central London, has been submitted for planning. The new development will transform the site into a multi-use destination incorporating retail, leisure and hotel accommodation. The design of the 58,676m2 city block, will restore the Trocadero’s presence to the surrounding streetscape by removing the triple height existing internal atrium and activating the frontages with large, quality retail units. The upper levels will provide leisure accommodation with the roofscape completely remodelled to accommodate a 600-bed hotel. The most obvious manifestation is the ‘wall of light’ a dynamic fully glazed elevation which creates a strong sense of identity appropriate to the theatreland location. Sheppard Robson’s design creates a coherent set of architectural interventions which unify the scheme with respect to the restored Grade II listed facades and the wider urban context.
