Carlton Hotel, Pall Mall, London

Carlton Hotel by Mexichino
The above is a mock-up of how Carlton Hotel might look if rebuilt. Located on the Haymarket, just off Pall Mall, the hotel was partially destroyed in the blitz and left derelict until 1959 when the modern high-rise known as New Zealand House was built on the site.

The architect was Charles John Phipps, who also built the identical facade of the adjacent Her Majesty's Theatre, which is still standing. The foundation stone was laid in 1896.
