The building was originally constructed in the late 17th century but was substantially re-built and re-modelled in 1911 to the designs of Sir Edwin Lutyens.

The proposals provide the opportunity to reinstate much of the stunning Lutyens work which includes the restoration of the original library.

Formation Architects are working in collaboration with renowned interior designer Martin Kemp to create a single-family residence in a Grade II listed building on this famous London square.
