Project Description



Number One Queen Anne’s Gate is a prestigious development of 27 luxury private apartments situated adjacent to St James’s Park in London. Aimed at those who enjoy the finer things in life like a full time concierge service, onsite gym and a private screening room, the development offers residents the epitome of luxury living.

Dating from around 1704, the building is Grade II listed and retains the external Georgian facade which is so typical of this area. The building was demolished behind the retained facade to allow modern state of the art development whilst retaining the historic significance and charm of the building. George Barnsdale’s experience of working with different types of retained facades and steel framed systems was invaluable in managing the fenestration for this project.

When it came to the choice of windows, the planners specified sympathetic like for like replacement with single glazing in the oldest parts of the building. George Barnsdale supplied and fitted a range of bespoke historic timber box  sash windows and flush casement windows with single and double glazing and putty glazing beading. Grandis hardwood doorsets were recreated and installed to complement the existing refurbished door sets. These incorporated the patterns of the original astragal bars.

In order to ensure clients enjoy complete quiet, acoustic laminated glass was incorporated into the design. Alongside this was George Barnsdale’s patented sash seal which ensures that drafts and noise are prevented from entering through the frame as is the case with original sash windows. Our sash windows consistently outperform others in acoustic and air tests.
