NOTES: The Stag Brewery site was a development from 1962-1963 of largely office buildings and some residential accommodation to the north of Victoria Street, Westminster. Its name comes from the Watney Mann brewery which stood on the site. The resulting buildings were designed by various architects and included a pedestrian square, Stag Place. It has since been rebuilt in the late 1990s early 2000s. The ticket offices for British United Airways is located on the ground floor of Portland House (by Howard Fairbairn & Partners). The BUA ticket offices have been designed by Clive Pascall & Peter Watson and make use of decorative glass screens and a space-frame suspended from the ceiling, used to create a visual barrier between different areas of the open-plan office.
