Art Deco Design
The Midland hotel is building of international significance and a Grade II listed building. Designed by Oliver Hill for the London, Midland and Scottish Railways (LMS) the design is in a Streamline Moderne style from the 1930's, which was inspired by ocean liners. It emphasises curving forms, long horizontal lines and nautical elements (sawhorses).
The Midland hotel architectural design features extensive use of simple, aerodynamic curves, glass walls such as on a central, large-windowed circular stair-tower and in restaurants and bars, porthole style windows, smooth surfaces and flat roof. See The Midland Hotel from Outside
