South Audley Street
This project was to design and refurbish an existing building at South Audley St, Grosvenor Square in Mayfair London. Brooks Murray prepared two designs for the client’s consideration and once the client settled on their preferred option, Brooks Murray worked further on detailed design drawing through to construction. The project consisted of works to the reception room, main stair and bathroom.
Brooks Murray prepared detailed internal elevations, plans and layouts and also specified furnishings such as tulip wood painted throughout including panelling, architraves and doors etc and detailing the main stair. The main stair, was designed so that the existing timber treads, string and handrail are to be exposed, sanded and varnished and metal railings are to be introduced.
South Audley Street, is situated in Mayfair W1, in Central London. The nearest tube stations to South Audley Street are ‘Green Park’ and ‘Bond Street’ which are only a minute walk away. This area falls today into two visually distinct sectors. North of South Street it is generally open and remnants of its Georgian past have been wholly obliterated apart from the Grosvenor Chapel; southward much of the street’s original character remains. This division accords well with an old social dichotomy, whereby small houses and commercial premises were plentiful at the north end but larger family residences predominated at the other end, culminating beyond Chesterfield House. Number 43 is at the southern and quieter end of the street, close to Grosvenor square.
