St. James’s Square

Situated in the corner of this historic London square, this Grade I listed property was completed in 1766 and was the first stone-fronted building in the square.

The property was adapted by architect and engineer Samuel Wyatt two decades later, but still includes many of the original features designed by James Stewart. The building is listed for many reasons, but a number of outstanding features include the many ornate ceilings and fireplaces.

LTS was asked to restore this property to its former glory by carrying out a conversion to create a residential building, which for many years had been used for office accommodation. The work included constructing a lower ground floor leisure complex.

Extensive structural alterations were made including digging into the basement to build a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna room. LTS designed and built the mechanical package, along with a new electrical installation and an audio visual system. Extensive restoration work was also carried out to the numerous intricate ceilings.

The finished property is now once again an elegant family home, combining historic features and modern convenience.
