Coutts Bank, The Strand by Frederick Gibberd

On the north side of The Strand (opposite Charing Cross Station) a glass wall has been built into a facade designed by John Nash. It looks onto a fine indoor garden court (by Frederick Gibberd and Partners) which was designed to give the feeling of a traditional London square - but with an ideal climate, cream coloured marble paving, sub-tropical plants and a revolving tree on a turntable. The Strand WC2 (open during banking hours).
