KINGSTON UPON HULL
SILVER STREET (South side)
No 1, Former Lloyds Bank
(Formerly listed as: 63 LLOYDS BANK, MARKET PLACE and 1 LLOYDS BANK, SILVER STREET)
Former bank with adjoining offices, 1912 designed by J Bilson of Hull.
Bank is built in ashlar, the adjoining offices facing Market Place has an ashlar ground floor with brick with ashlar dressings above. Roofs are slate.
Corner site with an angled corner formed from a single bay. The building is of 3 stories with an attic. The principal elevation is to the right of the corner and faces Silver Street. It is of 6 bays with the entrance in the fifth bay from the corner. The bank has a further 2 bays facing Market Place with the adjoining offices continuing to the left with a further 4 bays, the entrance to the offices being in the right-most bay.
The ground floor is rusticated and finished with a continuous architrave with a wide plain fascia with a cornice above. Ground floor windows have double keystones, the ground floor window joinery are modern replacements. The entrance is framed by an architrave with a double keystone and is below an open-based, segmental pediment supported on fluted columns. Also protected below the pediment is a carved relief featuring a central oval shield.
The first floor windows have triple keystones protected by open-based triangular pediments supported by brackets. The windows retain 12 pane sashes. Second floor windows also retain 12 pane sashes, but have double keystones and projecting cills. The window heads have hoodmoulds extending from the cornice. Above there is a modillion cornice supporting a balustrade featuring pedestals. On the roof there is a ridge and a gable stack also built of ashlar.
The ground floor is similar to that of the bank being rusticated ashlar. However the course containing the window keystones is missing so that the ground floor architrave and cornice is lowered. The entrance is also simplified but retains the double panelled doors. The first floor windows have projecting moulded stone architraves, cills and lintels, the lintels in the form of simple cornices. The second floor windows are similar to those of the bank, featuring triple keystones. The first and second floor windows retain 12 pane sashes. The modillion cornice above is also a continuation of that of the bank but there is no balustrade above. Instead there are three box dormer windows with double 6 pane casements. The roof has brick built ridge stacks rising from each gable featuring stone dressings.
The classically finished banking hall survives complete with a glass domed roof light to the rear. However there has been some minor alteration to the interior plan form with new stud partitions and security screens.
REASON FOR DESIGNATION DECISION
No. 1 Silver Street is Listed Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* It represents a good, little altered example of Edwardian commercial design, utilising classical architecture to convey an impression of respectability and permanence as befitting the building's use as a bank.
* The good quality of the materials and workmanship.
