SJ8498 : Bank House and Bank Chambers, Portland Street, Manchester

taken 7 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Bank House and Bank Chambers, Portland Street, Manchester
Bank House and Bank Chambers, Portland Street, Manchester
By Fitzroy Robinson & Partners, 1971, on the site of a warehouse destroyed during the Second World War. Quite distinctive designs with, I think, concrete, stone, granite, aluminium and bronzed windows all thrown into the melting pot.
Bank Chambers was built for the Bank of England and is reputed to be the most secure building in Manchester.
