II*

Includes: No. 56 former Midland Bank, SPRING GARDENS. Bank. 1929, by Sir Edwin Lutyens, with Whinney, Son and Austen Hall. Portland stone (roof not visible). Rectangular plan. Modernist classical style. A tall building with a slight batter, 10 storeys including basement and attic, arranged in diminishing stages of 4, 3, 2 and 1 storeys, with matching north, east and west facades and right-angled re-entrant corners; with 7 windows to the 1st stage, 1:5:1 windows to the 2nd stage (the sides set back, with obelisks in the re-entrant angles), the 3rd stage further reduced to a 2-storey 3-bay pavilion in the centre of a 3-storey 4-bay attic. The ground floor has channelled rustication, 3 small windows in the plinth, 3 very large round-headed windows to the banking hall with small panes and radiating glazing bars, and at each end a tall round-headed doorway with rusticated architrave, triglyph frieze, and prominent mutuled cornice, and over this an unusual deeply-splayed horizontal embrasure to a small square window (each doorway opening into a corner porch). Most windows have plain reveals and small-pane glazing, those to the 4th floor square, but the attic pavilion (which resembles an C18 orangery) has Corinthian semi-columns distyle in antis, a large round-headed window in the centre (and in each return wall), storeyed rectangular windows in the outer bays, and cresting over the centre. The rear (to Chancery Lane) differs in having a giant semi-circular arch in the centre and a smaller number of windows (some at the lower levels square), and a 5-bay attic pavilion with pedimented outer bays and a 3-bay colonnade in the centre. Interior: banking hall with circular colonnade.
