33–35 Bury Street

Mayfair, London

Grade II listed Bury House was built in 1901–1902 to the designs of Robert Worley. Located in a narrow street, just to the south of Piccadilly, Bury House was typical of the turn-of-the-century commercial mixed-use redevelopments in St James’s. The Historic Buildings Consultancy at Donald Insall Associates worked with Morrow & Lorraine Architects not only to restore the historic interiors, but to upgrade them so as to suit the needs of contemporary tenants, to include kitchens, secondary glazing (to help with energy consumption and late-night noise), bathrooms with showers, climate control, and terraces or balconies for post-work drinks. Consent was obtained for an elegant scheme, despite the tricky process due to it being a very tight site.
