The Marylebone Square development is a fantastic collection of 54 apartments, carefully selected boutiques, restaurants and a versatile hall. The scheme is due for completion in Q3 2023 and it combines traditional craft with 21st century engineering, blending into its historic home with a subtle modernity that enhances its surroundings.

architectural craftsmanship and an eye for detail. “We wanted to use
technology and engineering to reintroduce old craft into a contemporary
production, ” says Simon. “The balustrades were produced by a local foundry
and reintroduce an architectural aspect that is hundreds of years old.”
The building’s signature feature is an intricate lantern frieze that runs along
the edge of the terraced penthouses. In keeping with the architect’s considerate

Marylebone Square sits at the heart of the neighbourhood with a graceful,
