St Luke Old Street - Hawksmoor
St Luke Old Street in London
Nicholas Hawksmoor and John James
One of the six churches designed by Hawksmoor for the “Commission for Building Fifty New Churches”.
This design was a collaboration with John James. Hawksmoor was principally involved with the obelisk spire and staircase wings.
The church was heavily bombed during WWII and nearly demolished.
Fortunately a use was fond for the decommissioned church! Today it is home to the London Symphony Orchestra.
