Built in collaboration with Romaine-Walker and Jenkins, Lutyens only designed the elevations. The design incorporated a Banking Hall on the ground floor and flats above. The façade demonstrated a facility, much admired to the 1920s of ‘how to get up a building without repeating yourself’; the windows of each floor are different. (Amery et al, 1981, Cat no.193)

Nos. 67–68 on the corner to Marlborough Road, of 1930–1, has elevations designed by Lutyens. Here he seems fully in control, and not just pranking up a big utilitarian mass, as at some of his late commercial projects. Twin pedimented top bays, mannered mezzanine windows to a different rhythm, and a rusticated Doric ground floor with pilasters which seem to disintegrate and recoagulate.
