This is a large, mixed use development of shops and offices on Baker Street between Blandford Street and George Street. The two houses in the north are listed late Georgian town houses. The new buildings have traditional load bearing facades and continue the restrained appearance of the listed buildings along Baker Street and George Street but with varied details and proportions to give a picturesque appearance. However, the larger building on the corner of Baker Street and George Street has a more commanding presence. This is inspired by Home House, by Robert Adam and James Wyatt, and is constructed in Rudgewick brown stock brick which is tuck pointed giving a very precise appearance. The adjacent building has a giant Ionic order set above a rusticated base and forms the entrance and reception to the office buildings. It is constructed in Portland stone.
