Dolphin Square lies between Chichester Street and Grosvenor Road, fronting the River Thames. It was designed by the architect Gordon Jeeves and built between 1937-38. Originally planned as a high class modern residential complex, at the time it was built it was the largest block of flats in Europe.
The complex comprises thirteen wings, mostly ten storeys high but only seven storeys high on the street frontage, these grouped around a large internal courtyard. The neo-classical brown brick buildings form a prominent riverside landmark.
It was designated as a conservation area in 1990 and a conservation area audit SPD for the area was adopted in 2008.
