Other Information

  • 8 Albert Embankment was operated by the London Fire Brigade as their headquarters continuously from 1937 to 2008.
  • The 1930s art-deco reliefs on the building were designed and sculpted by Gilbert Bayes and depict firefighters at work, although they proved controversial due to their anachronisms such as the lack of a high pressure firehouse, and even the wrong helmets.
  • Plans by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands propose that two glass above the current level increasing the height of the building although the existing flag pole will remain as a pinnacle at the same level as before.
