contributed by davidb

Michelin House was designed by Francois Espinasse, an employee of the Michelin Tyre Company, who had no formal training as an architect. Its flamboyant style, although reminiscent of Art Nouveau, predates that movement by a decade. It was also the first building in London to use reinforced concrete in its construction. It served as the HQ of Michelin in the UK. The building was extended in 1912 and again in 1922. It was listed in 1969 and continually occupied by Michelin until they moved out in 1985. That same year it was purchased by Sir Terrance Conran and the publisher Paul Hamlyn. The first floor, adjacent to Fulham Road, was turned into the BIbendum restaurant. Most of the original features, mosaics, stained glass windows, light fittings and so on were restored, reinstated and preserved. Along Sloane Street, the building was refurbished and extended in a contemporary fashion: Ground and basement floors becoming the Conran Shop with offices over.
