Heritage minister Lord Inglewood today announced that the post-war Boots D90 Headquarters building in Nottingham has been added to the list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest.

The building has been listed in Grade II*. It was erected in 1966-68 to the designs of the American firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill in conjunction with the British practice of York, Rosenberg and Mardall. It is one of the most important out-of-town prestige headquarters developments in Britain.

The design of the Boots building made innovative use of welded steel. It has a sunken basement floor, lit by an internal courtyard with a shallow reflective pool, and the elegant interiors have been designed with great attention to detail. When built it was widely acclaimed as an exceptional piece of architectural design, and a very early example of open office planning on a specially landscaped greenfield site.
