The Space x

One Birdcage Walk is the purpose built home for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, a Royal Chartered Institution that was formed in 1847 by George Stephenson. We operate as a not for profit member’s organisation that strives to improve the world through engineering.

The building, built in 'Queen Anne style', the height of fashion at the time, was designed by architect Basil Slade. It was officially opened in 1899 when at the time, it was fitted out with state-of-the-art features such as a telephone, one of the first hydraulic lifts and synchronome master clock which used electrical impulses to ensure that all clocks in the building kept uniform time.

Located just minutes from the Houses of Parliament, Horse Guards Parade and Treasury, we are a 5 minute walk from Westminster and St James's Park tube.

The building, which overlooks St James's Park is regarded as one of the finest examples of traditional architecture in Westminster.
