GV II


Offices. 1900-1914. Possibly designed by E.Colcutt and B. Emmanuel, who supervised the architecture on this street laid out in 1899. Stone. High hipped roof of slate, recently rebuilt. Four-storeys and two dormer floors over high basement. Five-window range. All windows flat arched unless otherwise noted. Elevation symmetrical about round-arched entrance set in distyle in antis Ionic porch, the spandrels carved with banners and acanthus; the whole topped by segmental pediment, tympanum filled by armorial crests. Plinth and high socles to ground floor. Ground-floor windows articulated by plain piers, the entablature stepping out over each pier to form an impost block. Ionic pilasters to first floor. Round-arched light to centre range, the spandrels carved as palm fronds; blind balustrade to second-floor centre window. All second- and third-floor windows are segmental arched with blocked architraves; plain pilasters strips to top floors. Sill band to third-floor windows. Projecting cornice steps out over the pilaster strips. Segmental pedimented dormer to centre range is either a recent addition or rebuilt to an original design; the same can be said of the pairs of pedimented dormers to either side. Stacks to party walls. Flat-arched openings with glazing bars in the form of a Venetian window. Swan-necked security bars of an original design. Included as part of the important and cohesive group of Edwardian buildings in Lloyd's Avenue.
