The MI6 Headquarters is situated on the south side of the Thames next to Vauxhall Bridge. It is well known for its distinctive style which revives 1930's Art Deco architecture.

Terry Farrell designed the MI6 building. Terry Farrell has been working since the early 60's and one of his first jobs was the ventilation towers for the Blackwall Tunnel, one of which sits bang in the middle of the Millennium Dome. Farrell came to prominence in the 1980's for leading the way in 'Post Modern' architecture and his TV-AM building in Camden is seen as one of the best examples of this style.
