Crown Agents' Millbank Headquarters

Expanding business meant Crown Agents had moved between rented properties several times during its first 70 years of business, and by 1912 it had outgrown its home once more.

This was a chance to build a new office designed to the business' exact requirements. The new building on Millbank near Parliament Square quickly became one of London's landmarks. Crown Agents remained there for the next 70 years before moving again, in 1986, to a suburban setting in Sutton, on London's southern fringe.
