Sir Nicholas Pevsner, architect critic and writer, noted that Dolphin Square was ‘the largest self-contained block of flats in Europe’ and as late as 1992, no other building in Europehad a greater number of self-contained units under one contious roof. The revered American writer Temple Fielding saw the square as ‘mini city’ and to a certain extent this is still true today. However, the size of the building, the number of tenants, the sheer scope of the amenities and the central location all belie the fact that Dolphin Square is indeed and oasis of calm in the city.
