17 of 25 Principle 17

Principle 17:

Distinguish thresholds between Oxford Street, Soho and Fitzrovia to protect the heritage and identity of distinct adjacent character areas.

Example actions:

Explore how changes in scale, land use and building typology can create a bold threshold between Oxford Street and Soho or Fitzrovia.

Carefully design the corners, unit frontages, materiality and lighting on side streets immediately off Oxford Street to help maintain a clear transition between areas.
