Hamilton House has an interesting architectural pedigree. Constructed in 1899, it was designed by the eminent Victorian architect William Emerson, whose work includes All Saints Cathedral, Allahabad, and Clarence Memorial Wing of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington.
Architecturally, the building is described on the Victorian Web as an exemplar of ‘late-Victorian eclecticism, with just a touch of Arts and Crafts influence in the foliated pattern on the contrasting faience panels, which make such a feature of the fourth storey. The extended chimney stacks and angular gable look forward to the Edwardian period, too.’
Now Grade II listed, the building stands on the north side of the Victoria Embankment, overlooking the Thames and Inner Temple Garden, in London’s legal heartland.
Temple Tube station, served by the Circle and District lines, is a four-minute walk away, while London Blackfriars (providing a 35-minute service to Gatwick Airport) and City Thameslink railway stations are a ten-minute walk. Farringdon Station, which serves the brand-new Elizabeth Line is just 15 minutes away, and once the Elizabeth Line is fully open, this will offer direct access to Heathrow Airport.
