Home House

Home House is a Grade I listed townhouse in Portman Square, London.

Brooks Murray were appointed to carry out the initial feasibility study and concept design proposals to convert the building into a members club, a ‘gymnasium for the mind’.


Portman Square, London W1


Sandwiched on a terrace facing Portman Square in Marylebone, London, the James Wyatt and Robert Adam-designed Home House was for a long time home to the Courtauld Institute of Art.

When the Institute moved to Somerset House, the owners of the building wanted to design a members club that would operate as a ‘gymnasium for the mind’.

The Brooks Murray team designed club and conference rooms, integrating a sports bar, restaurant and terraced garden, twenty-six bedroom suites and health spa, including a gymnasium, splash pool, sauna, steam and treatments rooms, within the Grade I listed architecture of the old house.

Since the restoration the interior has not changed considerably. All the period features and cornicing are carefully maintained, whilst the opulent interior upgrades remain in keeping with the historic fabric of the house.
