Eye for London Prints - The Hoover Building Art Print Poster

The bright aquamarine windows in the backdrop of white, the glazed ceramics on the main entrance facade, the patterned black grills on the door, are some of the reasons why I just absolutely love this building and Art Deco architecture! Described as, "a sort of Art Deco Wentworth Woodhouse - with whizzing window curves derived from Erich Mendelsohn's work in Germany, and splashes of primary colour from the Aztec and Mayan fashions at the 1925 Paris Exhibition." In 1 Germany, and splashes of primary colour from the Aztec and Mayan fashions at the 1925 Paris Exhibition." In 1931 Ohio- based vacuum cleaner makers the Hoover Company commissioned Wallis, Gilbert and Partners to create a factory on the Western Avenue in Perivale. The Art Deco building was constructed using "Snowcreate" which is a white concrete that always will stay looking like new even after the harshest of British weathers and is decorated with bright coloured faience (glazed ceramic inspired by ancient Egypt). At night the building is illuminated with fluorescent green light - which makes the building visible to airlne passenger arrivals to nearby Heathrow airport. * Print sold unframed Printed on premium 350gsm lightly textured thick Matte Paper.
