Saturday 20th June 2010 William Whitfield Odyssey

Information on Whitfield seems pretty scant and if anyone can point me towards any books, websites etc I'd be grateful. The bare bones can be gotten here.

Below are images of four of his buildings in London, and you can see the full sets on the Flickr site.

1. Bessborough Street/33 Vauxhall Bridge Road

Think that's a Paolozzi.

Ribbed fascias/soffits with rounded edges in what looks like cast iron - super robust detail taken from the London Underground pattern book? (The entrance to Pimlico Underground station is contained within the building).

Facade of the long, narrow section of the building fronting onto Vauxhall Bridge Road.

2. Oriel House, Connaught Place, London W1R

Above, seen from Edgware Road.

3. Richmond House, 79 Whitehall, London SW1A

The familiar 'squeezed-in' frontage of the Department of Health

...and view from a side street suggesting there's quite a bit more of the building hidden from view.

4. Extension to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England & Wales. 1 Moorgate Place, London EC2R

  1. These simple tips are really good. I have used all these tips and I am surprised that these all works fine.You are a great advisor.
