Bronze entrance to the Churchill War rooms
Located between the Grade I-listed Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Grade II*-listed HM Treasury the canopy forms the entrance to Winston Churchill's underground WWII headquarters.
The shell-like bronze canopy is welded to a stainless steel skeleton frame and features highly burnished 25mm solid bronze letters mounted on perforated plates above the entrance.
Enclosed by a multi-faceted plaster vault, the interior reveals the existing Portland stone façades of the Treasury and Clive Steps, which have been cleaned and restored
