BATTERSEA PARK ROAD, SW11 Former library to Battersea Polytechnic Institute

(Formerly listed as Westminster College Chapel)

II

By E W Mountford 1909 as an addition to the architect's adjacent college building. It is a symmetrical single-storey Wren-style building 5-bays wide, of red brick with stone dressings. A stone-banded Doric pilaster order defines the bays, of which the centre bay is advanced by a pair of stone Ionic pilasters with entablature blocks supporting an open segmental pediment. The whole frames a large round-headed window of leaded lights having above it a console-keystone and cartouche. Each recessed lateral bay has a flat-headed sash with stone architrave and above it a bull's-eye window framed in a garland. A high parapet with stone coping masks a half-hipped tiled roof.
