Empire House

Originally built by Cardiff architects Percy Thomas and Ivor Jones in 1926, Empire House was the vision of Commander Charles E Evans, chairman of Evans and Reis, one of the largest coal exports in Wales.

The building became an iconic landmark within Mount Stuart Square. Having been empty for a number of years, Cardiff Bay Investments Ltd have invested in this striking building to promote development and provide a superb environment in which people want to work, live and play.

R&M Williams carried out the £4m refurbishment of this Grade II listed building into luxury apartments with an additional two storey rear and upper extension over 8 storeys. The works at Empire House have included the creation of 39 apartments, the renovation/replacement of existing timber windows and roof to the existing building, the construction of a 2 storey deluxe penthouse suite offering panoramic views across the city from three private terraces, on existing roof as well as the provision of new partitions, doors, floor, wall and ceiling finishes and new mechanical and electrical services including a new lift.
