TQ3180 : Sampson House, Hopton Street (2)

Sampson House, Hopton Street (2)
Sampson House would probably be best described as a Brutalist building. It was built in 1976-9 to the designs of Fitzroy Robinson & Partners who made extensive use of exposed concrete.

Admittedly it could be perceived as hostile to the passer-by with a lack of windows at street level and those above being mirrored, but even so I find it impressive. The railway line just over the river from Blackfriars station affords very good views. It is currently occupied by IBM.
