Nothing set in concrete at this point but my feeling both from an acoustic and logistical point of view is that the preferable arrangement is to have the desk and monitors at the party wall end (the one with the brick wall) facing down the length of the room.
That sounds like a good decision to me Eddy - as well as being preferable in most situations to fire down the long dimension of a room, pointing your monitors away from your neighbours is probably also a sensible choice ;)
Phew, I'm glad I remembered it right... and agreed on all fronts!

I notice you have some Velux type windows , (I saw you said you'd upped the spec for the other glazing - not sure if that applies to thes also?), but wonder what your plans are re taming any potential outside noise coming in via this route - I've got Veluxes myself in the studio room and have found they can be awfully noisy when the rain and wind blatters down on to them
Yes, the Velux windows are a known compromise. Unfortunately I didn't know about the existence of acoustic glass until too late, so they are what they are. That said, I don't record acoustically much and it's a serious hobby as opposed to a living so I can work around rain.
I live on a very quiet street so there is no real issue with road noise but in the event the windows are an issue I'll probably make a timber frame stuffed with 100mm Rockwool covered in acoustic fabric to use as a removable internal 'hatch' over them on those occasions I need more baffling.
In the meantime having spent half the day cleaning all the crud out from under what used to be the old loft floor I'm heading back up there to finish installing the RW3 between the floor joists :D
