The Ultimate Jettied Facade

MBA’s specialist conservation arm has completed an extensive programme of repairs to the exterior of Staple Inn High Holborn. This is one of the most prominent tudor facades in London, behind which are two courtyards re-lined in brick, a small garden and a Hall. The original building from 1585 was once the wool staple, where wool was weighed and taxed. It survived the great fire of London, was refaced in the 17th century, restored in the 19th and 20th centuries. The hall was damaged by bombing in 1944. Adjacent to the west and included within the estate, a terracotta-clad Waterhouse office building from the 1880s. The buildings are listed variously grade I, II* and II.
