- Traditionally banks were grand, imposing buildings, especially in Victorian times, though through the 20th century the design of many became more workaday and less attractive. •This branch of Lloyds, however, remains elegant, unusual and an asset to the High Street in Teddington, southwest London. • Built in 1929, it was given Grade 2 Listing in 1983 for being of special architectural interest. • According to historicengland.co.uk, the Portland stone edifice is of ‘strikingly original design’, with its 'concave double-height street facade, projecting semi-circular domed entrance porch with round-headed doorway, round-headed window to left and right and crowning cornice.’ Inside, the banking hall has a hemispherical domed ceiling and circular roof lights. • The building was designed by A Randall Wells (1877-1942), a significant but lesser-known Arts and Crafts architect, craftsman and inventor, the son of a Hastings architect. He was noticed by one of the most influential figures of the Arts and Crafts movement, William Lethaby (1857-1931), an architect and architectural historian, friend of William Morris and founder, in 1896, of what is today the renowned Central St Martins College of Arts and Design. • Lethaby first made Wells his resident architect on certain projects, allowing him notable freedom, and while continuing to collaborate with others, Wells developed his own practice. • He worked on several churches, including one of the largest and grandest in Essex, at Thaxted, once wealthy through producing cutlery. I have actually visited the 1510 hilltop church of St John the Baptist, in which Wells installed his giant Stellar star chandelier, rejected by the vicar of the original church in London's Primrose Hill. • Wells’ wife Molly, with whom he collaborated, had been the wife of one of his clients and through her family link to the chairman of Lloyds Bank (the wonderfully named Beaumont Pease), he was commissioned to design the Teddington branch. • Nearby Hammersmith has the honour of a Wells building whose huge curved glass window featured in Series One of BBC’s ’The Apprentice'. #architecture #buildings #highstreetstyle #artsandcrafts #modernism
