UPPER HIGH STREET
Queen Elizabeth II Court
Offices for Hampshire County Council. 1959-60. C. Cowles-Voysey, J. Brandon-Jones, J. D. Broadbent and R. Ashton. Brown brick. Red pantiled steeply pitched roof to eaves. Copper roof and spire to fleche. Courtyard plan on irregular corner site. Main block of four storeys plus attic with projecting wing of two storeys in front. Segmental headed casement windows, mostly of six-lights, single-glazed, in broad timber frames. Attic windows smaller, also segmental headed. Entrance through triple segmental arches into courtyard. Fleche with tiled base, white-painted clock stage and upper polygonal stage with ogee roof between stages and topped by a concave-sided copper spire, finished with a weather cock.
INTERIOR has idiosyncratic neo-Romanesque details to staircase hall. A beautifully detailed building in a Scandinavian classical-influenced idiom, which is a landmark in this part of Winchester.
Ashburton Court, a later building joined to Queen Elizabeth Court, is not of special interest.
