Lloyds Building
The LLOYD\'S BUILDING (sometimes known as THE INSIDE-OUT BUILDING) is the home of the insurance institution Lloyd\'s of London . It is located on the former site of East India House in Lime Street , in London's main financial district, the City of London . The building is a leading example of radical Bowellism architecture in which the services for the building, such as ducts and lifts , are located on the exterior to maximise space in the interior. Twenty-five years after completion in 1986, the building received Grade I listing in 2011; it was the youngest structure ever to obtain this status. It is said by Historic England to be "universally recognised as one of the key buildings of the modern epoch".

In 1958, due to expansion of the market, a new building was constructed across the road at 51 Lime Street (now the site of the Willis Building ). Lloyd's now occupied the Heysham Building and the Cooper Building. By the 1970s Lloyd's had again outgrown these two buildings and proposed to extend the Cooper Building

Opposite Lloyd's, the Willis Building is the global headquarters of insurance broker Willis . A 35-storey building has been proposed at 52-54 Lime Street

, and upon approval and completion by 2017 will become the European headquarters of global insurer W. R. Berkley . The northern portion of the street is pedestrianised . Vehicular through-access to Leadenhall Street is prevented by a firegate, forcing drivers to bear right onto Fenchurch Avenue, from which a left turn onto Billiter Street returns vehicles to Leadenhall Street.
