Traditional awning at Royal Over-Seas League

20 Apr 2017

This  Signature Victorian Awning® has been installed at the Royal Over-Seas League Members Club in James's Street, London. The traditional awning box is manufactured in FSA accredited hardwood which has been painted in Rosewood stain to suit the ancient building.  With a fabric cover  in an attractive mauve shaded canvas and branding in contrasting gold it presents a stylish, yet understated, appearance. All our Victorian Awnings are designed to suit buildings of historic value like this one and are often specified by discerning councils for conservation areas. The contrast on modern buildings means the Traditional style can also be used to great effect in these circumstances.

The Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL) is a non-profit private members' club dedicated to championing international friendship and understanding. They help artists and musicians across the Commonwealth to connect, collaborate and create. Their humanitarian work benefits communities and changes lives. Members enjoy luxury clubhouses with accommodation in St James's (like this one), London and Princes Street, Edinburgh, a vibrant event calendar packed with tours, trips and talks, and links to over 100 reciprocal clubs worldwide.

St James's Street was built up without an over-all plan but received a boost with Lord St Albans' planned construction of St. James's Square. Today St James's Street contains several of London's best-known gentlemen's clubs, such as Brooks's, the Carlton Club and White's, in addition to some exclusive shops and various offices. A series of small side streets on its western side lead to some noteworthy and exclusive properties overlooking Green Park. These include Spencer House and the aforementioned Royal Over-Seas League at the end of Park Place.
