This is the Lloyds TSB building in Gresham Street opposite Goldsmith’s Hall. Designed by Nicholas Grimshaw, it has a slate and steel facade. There’s lots of joints and connections that give the building a satisfyingly Meccano-like quality – it looks hand-bolted together. The building hovers above an ancient garden and is absolutely full of intricate detail. The oddest aspect is the slightly strange collection of conifers above the main entrance – slightly twee in such a muscular building.
