102 Petty France (2)
102 Petty France (2)
A monumental, "mulishly proportioned" speculative block of stone. There is a tower at the junction with Queen Anne's Gate which is not very much taller than the broad front along Petty France with bulging windows at the bottom and overhanging top storey. It was built in 1972-76 to the designs of Basil Spence and the Fitzroy Robinson Partnership, and was occupied for many years by the Home Office. After they decamped down the road (TQ2979 : Home Office, Marsham Street), the Ministry of Justice moved in.
