Description of 36 Soho Square
36 Soho Square is an early Georgian terraced house that was probably refronted in the late 18th century. 36 Soho Square forms part of an important original streetscape onto Soho Square, laid out by Gregory King in 1681. The building is built of red painted brick of load-bearing masonry construction, has four storeys plus a basement, and three bays. The upper storey appears to date from the late 18th century or early 19th century with stone coping to the parapet.
The foundations are thought to be ground bearing. The ground floor is stuccoed with a doorway to the right with sidelights and a decorative radial fanlight.
The interior retains a simple early 19th-century staircase, over which is a large oval skylight. There is also an inlaid marble column screen to the ground floor, and a variety of good chimneypieces throughout. Basement areas include unfinished masonry barrel vaulting.
