EVENT - Tour
Wednesday, 26 October, 3pm
How do you take a great commercial building in the City, and bring it up to the standards required by 21st century occupants? Office buildings don’t come much grander than the one-time home of the Anglo Persian Oil Company (later ‘BP’), which was designed by Lutyens in the 1920s, and is now Grade ΙΙ* listed. Alan Francis, Director of Gaunt Francis Architects who presided over the transformation, gives the Society an exclusive tour of the building, and explains the challenges faced…and how they were overcome.
