HOOVER Building, Perivale - Entrance
The Hoover Building is a Grade II* listed building of Art Deco architecture designed by Wallis, Gilbert and Partners located on the A40 in Perivale. The site opened in 1933 as the UK headquarters, manufacturing plant and repairs centre for The Hoover Company. In 1989 the supermarket chain Tesco purchased the Hoover Building and sixteen of the seventeen houses that backed onto the Hoover site. The northern parts of the factory site were demolished to make way for a supermarket and the main building was repaired and refurbished to create office space. In 2017/18 the main building was converted into apartments.
