Developers who restored and converted The Star and Garter on Richmond have won three gold awards at the 'Oscars' of the housebuilding industry.

London Square beat of competition to win three golds at the WhatHouse? Awards 2018, for its restoration and conversion into stunning apartments at The Star and Garter, the Grade II listed landmark. It was previously The Royal Star & Garter Homes charity, where injured servicemen and women received nursing care.

Rebecca Littler, Sales and Marketing Director, London Square, said: “This a record-breaking victory for London Square. Winning these amazing accolades demonstrates the breadth of skills and experience of the London Square team for tackling complex, challenging sites. We are so proud of what we have achieved at The Star and Garter. We believe we have an unrivalled team delivering the highest quality homes and creating new communities across the capital and our achievements at the WhatHouse? Awards reflect our commitment to being best in class.”

At a glamorous awards ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall and TV personality Gabby Logan, London Square were presented with gold for the Best Luxury House category for the East Wing, The Star and Garter. The judges said it is “6,500 sq ft of pure luxury over three floors. London Square has managed to retain the grandeur of the original building, which is successfully combined with all the practicalities of a modern, luxury home.”

The East Wing was chosen for the gold accolade for Best Interior Design, with the judges commenting: “Hats off to London Square for its vision in creating something so special.”

The Star and Garter also scooped gold for the Best Luxury Development category, winning praise from the judges for "the quality and complexity of this conversion that demands a gold rating. The apartments themselves are simply magnificent. The luxury of the communal areas and the prestige of the location make this conversion project uniquely desirable.”
