Restoration of a Lutyens building in Central London

Restoration of a Lutyens building in Central London

This building, originally commissioned by the Midland Bank from their architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, is listed grade II*, but was in a poor state at the time that the bank’s lease came to an end and the freehold reverted to Westminster City Council. Working with a specialist team of master craftsmen, the butchered walnut panelling in the main banking hall and limed oak bolection moulded panelling in the important “American Room” on the first floor were restored.
