1788 - Eastern Part of South Office Block
The eastern half of South Office Block built as stores (now offices). The designer was said to have been George White, Master Shipwright; the design was dictated by the western half of the building housing the Admiral Superintendents office. Its original purpose was that of a storehouse and differs from the western building in that it does not have a basement. By 1849 it had been converted it to offices for the Director of Works, Clerk of Works and other officials. It was also said that at times it was used as a police station and an armoury.
