About the Building
This delightful Grade II listed building located opposite the Bank of England in the City of London, is one of the finest examples of Venetian gothic revival. Venetian Gothic remains one of the most noted and remarkable styles in the history of architecture, dating to the 14th Century, influenced by Byzantine, Moorish and Ottoman styles.
It was perfected by the Venetians, with some of the finest examples being the Palazzo Ducale, Ca’ d’Oro and the Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti. The building was designed by the celebrated RIBA architect George Somers Clarke in the late 1860’s who also worked on the designs for the Palace of Westminster.
Once completed it became the head office for the General Credit and Discount Company, later the home of brokers and merchants Speyer Brothers, The National Bank of Australia, stockbrokers Laurie Milbank & Co and a private dining club for the Overseas Bankers’ Club. Converted into luxury apartments this millennium the building was restored to its former glory, designed to complement the building’s heritage and using thoughtful architecture and contemporary finishes to create the perfect space for City living.
