MWA are in planning discussions with the London Borough of Camden to extend and convert the Grade I listed Diorama building located on Regents Park.
The Diorama is the last remaining building of its kind, and was originally built behind a John Nash Terrace to house an early French theatre concept which became a precursor to motion picture. The Princes Trust were the last occupant of the building but the building is currently vacant pending its sale.
The design proposals aim to respect and enhance the properties’ historic importance through the reinstatement of the former rotunda space which housed the theatre’s audience on a rotating platform. The proposals look to convert two buildings which flank either side of the historic diorama entrance, back into single family homes with the Diorama space becoming high quality office space.
Both the office and residential buildings will benefit from views across Regents Park and access to the private park containing tennis courts. A new 4th floor is proposed to increase the office provision which will take the total floor space from 30,000sqft up to circa 42,400sqft
Size 42,403 SQ.FT
