Great George Street

Overview / Design Response

George Street was originally created following the construction of Westminster Bridge in 1750. Inaugurated in 1757, the street became an ideal location for the nobility connecting Buckingham Palace to the parish of Westminster. The original residential buildings, now demolished, were described as the perfect examples of 19th century architecture, Semi-circular brickwork openings were adorned with unique fanlights and interiors were decorated with rare wood species panelling and crafted iron ornaments. Following the demolition of 8-10 George Street at the beginning of the 20th Century, a new building was erected in 1930 to house Middlesex Country Council. The most recent evolution of the site sees its transformation into a luxury hotel.
