Completed in 1932, the Hoover Building in west London was designed by the celebrated art-deco architectural practice Wallis, Gilbert & Partners. Originally commissioned as a factory complex for the Hoover Company it received Grade II listing in 1980 and continued to be used by them until the late 1980’s where after it was ultimately bought by the Tesco’s supermarket group in 1989 for £12 million and renovated to provide a new superstore and office space for them.

Fantastic to photograph, it is illuminated with emerald green lights at night which gives the white concrete building this unique and famous look.
