Groovy, baby: Westminster council has given outline planning permission for the refurbishment of the faux Tudor Liberty building on Carnaby Street, central London. This follows the recent revamp of the Liberty store on Regent Street by its new owner Marylebone Warwick Balfour. Architect Lifschutz Davidson’s design includes a restaurant and a five-storey shop window in the unlisted pastiche building, originally constructed for Liberty in 1923. The project team includes structural and services consultant Arup and QS and project manager Davis Langdon & Everest.
