Project completed at 17 Portland Place

Found Associates provided architectural and interior design services for the recently completed major refurbishment, alteration and upgrade of 17 Portland Place. This created high specification serviced offices in Marylebone, at the heart of the Harley Street conservation area.

Duchess Investment Holdings Ltd, a joint venture between Investec and Argo Real Estate clients, acquired the Grade II* listed building in 2016. Originally designed by the Adam Brothers, it now offers 13,000sqft of serviced office space with a wealth of communal areas including a café/bar, a lounge, meeting rooms, kitchens and an external courtyard garden.

The listed building’s historic character has been carefully restored through sympathetic refurbishment, with new materials, lighting and furniture being carefully chosen to elevate and enhance the existing architecture.

Found Associates worked closely with the client from concept to completion to ensure the delivery of their vision for the building. Cost management, project management and contract administration services for all stages of the project were provided by Equals Consulting.
