(odd) The Quadrant
G.V. II
Quadrant of offices and shops. Part of the south western half of
Sir Reginald Blomfield's grandiose rebuilding of Nash's Quadrant, designed
c.1910 taking Norman Shaw's neo-Baroque set piece of the Quadrant elevation
of his Piccadilly Hotel (Piccadilly q.v.) as key and seale, completed
1920-23. Stone faced, slate roofs. Podium embracing ground floor and
mezzanine, 3 storeys above and dormered steep mansard. The podium has
boldly pulvinated rustication to its articulating piers, ashlar upper
floors with windows in flat surrounds; rich modillion eaves cornice,
continuous range of dormers in roof which has bronze ridge cresting;
prominent banded and corniced chimney stone stacks. The penetration of
Swallow Street is masked by a rusticated semicircular arched bridge with
open, giant, 3 storey Doric columned loggia over, a la Somerset House. The
Quadrant composition is terminated by a slightly advanced pavilion with
concave pyramidal cupola roof, balancing similar features to eastern end,
viz Nos. 49 to 63 odd, qv.
