Notes NOTES: Rosenauer was commissioned to design and build a large hotel and tower blocks on the site of the bombed ruins of Montagu House, a late 18th century house by James 'Athenian' Stuart. Having completed the design, the Fine Arts Commision turned it down, but settled for Rosenauer receiving external advice. Thus Powell & Moya, called in as consultants, made a few minor alterations to the external design, as they considered Rosenauer's design perfectly adequate.
