Dorset House - Gloucester Place, London, UK

Date Built
Gloucester Place
This 10-storey apartment building occupies a whole block at the corner of Gloucester Place and Marylebone Road.  The "" describes Dorset House as, "Four, point-access towers are connected together defining an interior courtyard, but also partly enclose smaller garden spaces around the perimeter of the building. Set on a two-storey plinth of commercial spaces, the top two floors step back creating a distinctive terraced form. The tower elements vary slightly in plan, but either four or six apartments are grouped around a short interior hallway that is serviced by elevators and two stairs. Dwellings vary in size from 1 to 3 bedrooms. Most have exposure to two or three sides of the building and the larger apartments have large terraces or balconies on the ends of the tower elements."
