Other Information

  • The Art Deco Wallis House was the last of the great factories to start construction along the Great West Road before World War 2 changed everything with the building originally occupied by Simmonds Aerocessories before later being taken over and turned into offices by Beecham Pharmaceuticals who vacated it in 1995.
  • As a listed structure, the ground and lower ground floors of the building which were originally offices, have been refurbished to mimic their original appearance. Much of the exterior of the building has also been retained although the original Crittall windows were removed and replaced with more efficient modern glazing.
  • Much of the structure was in a poor condition thus one of the buildings concrete stairwell window, all six storeys of it, required remedial work along with the steel structural frame of the ten upper floors.
  • Above the office floors the building has had a new structure added with apartments installed along with a new penthouse constructed.
