Whittington House - London

Richard Seifert
Date Built
1970 - 1972
Alfred Place
This is a building that is hard to photograph because its almost mirror like surface is highly reflective and extremely shiny on a sunny day.  The flat facade is broken by numerous pointed windows set in what is described in some sources as granite.  Ruth Siddall writing on a UCL website describes it as, "... highly polished, black Rustenburg Bon Accord Gabbro from the Bushveld lopolith in the Transvaal, South Africa."

At street level the building features tapering pilotis similar to other buildings by Seifert.
