The building is home to the Study Society.  Founded in 1951 by Dr. F. C. Roles and his friends who had been associates of Ouspensky, the Study Society was established to carry on his aims and researches.

The unusual and lovely buildings just to the east were artists' studios - London Details has an excellent write-up.
