NOTES: James Lomax-Simpson joined Lever Brothers in 1910 as company architect. Unilever House, originally called Lever House, was designed by Lomax-Simpson in conjunction with Sir John Burnet Tait & Partners and built 1930-1932. In 1982 architect Theo Crosby of Pentagram carried out a refurbishment of the offices on the eighth floor, using the original Art Deco fittings as inspiration, to create a synthesis of Art Deco, Frank Lloyd Wright and Dutch Expressionism.
