Former Lyons Corner House. 1907 by W J Ancell for the corner block with Rupert
Street; 1921-23 extension along Coventry Street by F J Mills. White glazed
terracotta facing, slate roofs. Lively and crowded Free Baroque to the earlier
corner block with simple classical features to the much larger scale Mills
extension. Corner block of 4 main storeys. 2 windows wide each side of bowed
corner. 1980s ground floor refacing in keeping, articulated by pilaster-piers.
Tripartite windows, with consoles rising from those on 1st floor to support
balconies of 2nd floor windows, have rusticated Ionic columns with broken seg-
mental pediments to those in outer bays and to those in bowed corner, the cleft
pediments framing the attic storey windows. Balustraded parapet and attic
pavilions above the inner bays flanking the inset cupola over the corner which
has columns supporting an 'onion' ribbed dome. The 1921-23 extension is of
4 tall storeys, 9 windows wide. Ground floor with 1980s central entrance and
2 large display windows flanked by original coupled Roman Doric columns, deep
entablature. 1st and 2nd floors have windows grouped in 3 major bays with cen-
tral window of each group on 1st floor set in large aedicule with enriched
console-key breaking into pediment, articulated by pilasters and panelled piers.
Square piered deep loggia to top floor beneath bold crowning cornice and
parapet. Tall pediment-gable capped chimney stacks. Well-preserved example
of the Lyons Corner House style.
