What was the shape of 20 Fenchurch Street?

The building of 20 Fenchurch Street, which has a distinctive and iconic design, forced the project team to come up with a variety of novel solutions. The building is an elliptical tower with a dome on top. It is 22 meters high and contains 87 apartments plus a ground-floor restaurant called "Dover Street Market". There's also a shop at number 20.

They built the tower in three parts: the first part was given the height of 28 feet; the second part, which includes the dome, was added later on, when the building had reached its full height; the third part is made up of balconies that extend from the upper floors down to the street level.

Inside the tower there are five levels total. The ground floor contains shops at both Dover Street and Fenchurch Street. The first floor is where most of the apartment residents' amenities are located: a lounge/dining room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a bathroom. The top floor is mostly taken up by a master bedroom and a walk-in wardrobe.

When the building was first completed in 1869 it was the highest structure in London. Today it is still one of the tallest residential buildings in the city at only 22 meters tall but it used to be much higher!

Where is the cheapest house under £500 000 in Leeds?

This converted church was built in 1882 and is located near Leeds and Manchester. It includes four bedrooms, original elements, and plenty of light thanks to the stunning vaulted windows. The interiors, which are spread across three storeys and include a cellar, have been updated, but the building retains much of its original charm. It's just outside the city centre, close to public transport and surrounded by green spaces.

This converted chapel was built in 1770 and is located in Leeds town centre. It has five bedrooms, modern interior design, and good access for disabled people. The location is very central, close to public transport, shops, and restaurants. There's also a pub next door!

What kind of building is the Thistle Hotel?

The Thistle Hotel is a classically styled art deco structure, one of just a few true art deco structures extant in London. Coincidentally, while considerably older, Marble Arch is composed of a material that was popular during the height of the art deco movement in the 1920s and 1930s. The Thistle opened on 7 August 1935.

Art deco was a revolutionary design style that emerged in Europe between about 1928 and 1939. It was inspired by modernism and technological innovation, but also had antecedents in medieval architecture and classic Greek and Roman styling. Art deco included bright colors, geometric shapes, and stylized imagery drawn from nature. It was used extensively by European designers to furnish public spaces such as hotels, restaurants, and museums.

Although it has been suggested that some buildings in New York City may be art deco, this designation is most commonly applied to structures built in Europe or South America between about 1928 and 1939. In North America, the style evolved into something called "American Modern," which is more accurately called "Modern American." Like its European counterpart, American Modern was based on functionalism with influences from various parts of the world. It can be seen in cities across the United States today in buildings as diverse as the Chrysler Building in New York City and the Hollywood Memorial Chapel in Los Angeles.

The Thistle is one of only two classically styled art deco hotels in London (the other being the Westbury Castle).

When was Benfleet's high street built?

The town's high street dates back to 1612, when it was first mentioned in writing. It became a regular part of the borough chartered in 1854, and was made into its own administrative unit in 1866. Since then, it has become an important retail area for Benfleet and surrounding areas.

The current layout of the high street was established around 1890, after which time it began to expand outwards from the centre towards Leyton and Southend-on-Sea. By the 1960s, there were over 100 shops in the high street. This had fallen to about 80 by the 1990s before starting to rise again.

In October 2004, the council approved plans to rebuild the high street in order to make it more attractive to shoppers and walkers. The new design will feature larger premises for shops with better access for customers using wheelchairs, plus a library and community room. Work started in late 2005 and is expected to be completed by early 2008.

You can learn more about the history of the high street at the Museum of Essex Life in Brentwood.

What was the high street like in medieval England?

The streets in medieval England were composed of earth and cobblestone, with a rainwater trench in the middle to avoid floods. This would have been a great idea if people had quit stuffing their rubbish everywhere they could. As it was, the trenches soon became full of rotting food and animal waste that made everyone sick.

There were no cars in those days, so all trade and transportation took place on foot or on horses. Thus, the streets were filled with shops and marketplaces where people could buy food, clothes, and other necessities as well as entertainment places such as pubs and churches.

These areas were usually in the center of town near the mayor's office and the courthouse. People would travel from far away just to shop at these markets. In fact, some say there were more sellers than buyers at times!

Also near the markets were prisons. There were two kinds of prisons in England at this time: one for petty criminals and the other for serious offenders. Most prisoners worked on public works projects during their time here. If they behaved themselves and did not kill another prisoner, they might be allowed out of their cells for a few hours each day.

Behind every prison was a large yard called a 'piazza'. Here prisoners could exercise their rights as citizens by going to court to face their crimes or hiring lawyers to defend them.
