42 Portland Place
London W1B



The building was originally designed in
the late 18th Century as a gentleman’s residence by the Adams’ brothers. It
is a five storey, Grade ll* listed Georgian town house. To the rear there was a single storey build out flanked by two light wells which in turn gave onto an original two storey Victorian Mews House.

The brief from the Howard de Walden Estate was to modernise the building
in order to attract a new tenant. This included maximising the floor plates
with regard to nett lettable office space.

The brief also involved the insertion of
a lift to enable access for wheel chair users throughout the building, and the modernisation of the building to contemporary standards of servicing.
