HISTORICAL NOTE: plans submitted by PF Robinson and GT Andrews for remodelling the adjacent York Castle were accepted in 1825 and executed between 1826-35 and susequently demolished. This building functioned as Andrews' office until his death in 1855, and was used by successive partners in the practice until 1891. It is probably the earliest surviving purpose-built architects office. (City of York: RCHME: The Central Area: HMSO: 1981-: 113). Listing NGR: SE6048151561
