8 St. James’ Square


There are few more sophisticated urban settings in the world than St James’s Square. Number 8 forms one half of the gateway to the square, the other being the renowned Chatham House.

It is a site that leads to Jermyn Street and Christopher Wren’s church of St James’s, Piccadilly to its north. It has views over the grandest of London’s Georgian squares to the south and shoulders Sir Edwin Lutyens’ stately house at number 7. The history of the site has played its part in the aspiration to create a master work for the future whilst maintaining continuities with the past. It has offered the opportunity to achieve a new standard of restrained contemporary craftsmanship to parallel the unrivalled location.
