The OWO, Whitehall
The renaissance of an icon in the heart of Central London.
The OWO is a landmark Grade II*-listed Edwardian baroque building situated in the heart of London on Whitehall and opposite Horse Guards. Formerly home to the Ministry of Defence, the building was once the office of great statesmen such as Winston Churchill and Lord Haldane and was the inspiration for writer Ian Fleming for his James Bond 007 spy stories.
The OWO is being meticulously brought back to life to create a new destination for central London, moments from the Royal Park of St. James’s, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Downing Street, all of which are a short walk away.
