The far building of Portland stone with windows divided by vertical mullions and entrance with a wavy canopy is by L.C. Howitt, 1957-62. To the fore is a little of the extension by the Property Services Agency, c1986. It is rather more brutal. Pevsner considers it all a "come-down" from Alfred Waterhouse's original buildings, destroyed in the Blitz.
