Quotation from website:

"Formerly the headquarters of the Prudential Assurance company, this building on Holborn Bars was designed by Alfred Waterhouse and completed at the beginning of the 20th Century by his son Paul.

Over the years the red terracotta building has been renovated on a number of occasions. The Skyscraper News website says that, "By the 1930s the Victorian Gothic building was increasingly dated, both inside and out. E.M Joseph was brought in as the architect for this renovation and remodelled the exterior with the terracotta that one can see today. Numerous Gothic Revival interiors were stripped out and replaced by Art-Deco furnishings making it more fashionable again. " They add that, "Holborn Bars was renovated again, this time in 1993 by EPR Architects whose overhaul of the building led to an increase of internal space from 34,931 square metres to 39,948 square metres. Although not occupied by the Prudential today (they left in 1999), they retain ownership of it over one hundred years on."
