Fitzroy Square

One of London’s grand, tidy Georgian squares, Fitzroy Square and its surrounds are the culmination of a  series of developments begun in the last decade of the eighteenth century by Charles FitzRoy, 1st Baron of Southampton. The eastern and southern sides of the square, designed by Robert Adam, were finished in 1798.

Brooks Murray were appointed to prepare a planning application on a listed town house in the square, and to build out the extensions and the external and internal renovations of the house.

Fitzrovia, London

The square, nearby Fitzroy Street, and the Fitzroy Tavern in Charlotte Street, take the name of Charles Fitzroy, 2nd Duke of Grafton (b.1683). His grandson, also Charles Fitzroy, developed the area during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

The square was built in four stages. The eastern and southern sides, designed by Robert Adam, were completed in 1798. They are fronted in Portland stone brought by sea from Dorset.

Brooks Murray designed a scheme which received planning approval and listed building consent to restore a listed town house in the square and tend to the courtyard and landscaping to the rear.
