I don't know who put up these buildings - the other one houses Cafe Nero, formerly Tyser Greenwood Estate Agents - but whoever it was had vision and taste. Both qualities missing from the LendLease architect who has come up with the most atrocious design for the tower that will replace the currently rather unobtrusive blue glass Empire House.The new tower will, literally, tower over the High Road and the Green. And there will be 2 additional towers - it's the Manhattenatision of Chiswick!
If you go to Chiswick Library and pick up one of the books on the ground floor and/or speak to one of the staff in the Local History department, they can probably find out who designed and built the two buildings which - as people have said - pay hommage to Art Deco and Voysey House.
