Albany House & Mortimer Street

Warm and peaceful living above the 24/7 society

Client: Crown Estate

Regent Street is having a makeover. Many of its properties are being rejuvenated, a recent example is the conversion of two disused office buildings one, Albany House on the corner of Regent St and Mortimer St and another in Mortimer St, creating twenty four high-spec luxury apartments. This presented the challenge of creating a comfortable and peaceful living environment in an area constantly on the go. Being Grade II Listed the original single glazed sash windows could not be altered in any way so careful thought had to be given to dealing with traffic noise and the drafts and heat loss associated with older windows. Selectaglaze developed a range of designs to meet the performance requirements and to be sympathetic with the overall design. The inclusion of Selectaglaze secondary glazing for both thermal retention and noise insulation contributed towards the properties being awarded an  Eco Homes Excellent rating.
