Sunderland, High Street West, Nos. 104 - 109





Early Modern


Extant Building

Hutchinson's Buildings (104-109 High Street West), rebuilt in 1898-9. A handsome late-C19 commercial design, whose main facade represents a subtle reworking of the theme of the original building by its use of classical orders presented in similar stone. It has a legible plan-form, retaining the basements of the original building but clearly reflecting late-C19 interest in creating chambers above commercial premises. It retains a variety of original fixtures and fittings including a Minton Hollins tiled hall, a neo-Jacobean stair, and plasterwork, joinery and chimneypieces to the upper levels. LISTED GRADE 2
