Albert Hall Mansions


These luxurious red-brick apartments designed by Richard Norman Shaw in 1879, were the first to be designed in the new ‘Queen Anne’ style. Inspired by Parisian apartments, Shaw chose a symmetrical planning of the facade overlooking Hyde Park to give the building a dignified and monumental character in contrast to the romantic profile of the surrounding buildings. The block was built using red-brick with contrasting gauged brickwork in the end elevations.

Rosewood were instructed to undertake extensive works to all four elevations and light wells of the Albert Hall Mansions. Works on the building included a Thermatech clean, stone and brick replacement, the removal of failed brick corbels from the front elevation and replacement with new Red Rubbers and gauged brick pointing. New stone entrance steps were also installed as well as a new liquid plastic roof, joinery repairs and decorations throughout.
