St George's Church - Bloomsbury
St George’s Church, Bloomsbury is listed Grade I and was Nicholas Hawksmoor’s last great project, one of six new London churches, and is considered by many to be the masterpiece of Baroque Architecture. The church was built between 1716 and 1731 but has been much altered over the years. Laid out on the traditional east-west axis, on a very congested site to a novel and complex floor plan, the orientation was changed to north-south as early as 1780.
The condition of the building had deteriorated in recent years. This project repaired the stonework inside and out, returned the undercroft to full use, reordered the church to east-west, repaired and recovered the roof, and completely reorganised the building services, incorporating a plant room in available but otherwise unused space in the tower. This project has won numerous awards for architecture, conservation and craftsmanship.
