London icon: inside Centre Point’s facelift by Conran + Partners

The Centre Point tower has been an instantly recognisable landmark of central London since its completion in 1966; and as any architecture lover would add, it is a key project by its creator, Richard Seifert.

Its architectural merits – the building holds Grade II-listed status since the mid-1990s – were overshadowed for many years by the fact that it remained unoccupied and underused, becoming a kind of architectural ‘white elephant’, say Almacantar, the developers behind its newly revealed redesign. The property specialist bought the complex in 2010 in a bid to completely reimagine its use.

Enter Conran + Partners, the design firm behind the tower’s thoroughly refreshed look and complete transformation from commercial use to residential. Their task was to ‘restore, update, convert and reconfigure the 34-storey office tower into residential use, with supporting amenity spaces and a new ground floor’, explains Almacantar.
