MPs in the House have been told that the Grey Room in the Commons is to be demolished.
According to the announcement by the Prime Minister, the Grey room will be replaced by a new “Grey Room” designed by architect and designer Dinesh Dubey.
The House of Lords has been told the building will be razed in 2018, after an earlier attempt to convert it to a hotel failed.
Dubey’s new “grey room” will be completed by 2021, according the Prime Minster’s announcement.
Dubez has previously described the grey room as a “vital part of our history and heritage” and said it was “a symbol of the country”.
He said that the building had been a part of the “historic, historic and cultural fabric” of the UK since the founding of the Royal Mint in 1844.
Dubbey said that it would be a “significant change” for the House to relocate the greyroom, adding that it was a “big milestone” for him.
“I am delighted to have this opportunity to continue the legacy of the British House of Parliament and its heritage in a new way,” he said.
“The House is the embodiment of the democratic, compassionate, egalitarian and inclusive spirit of the people of the United Kingdom and I want to continue to represent that spirit.”
Dubey, who is best known for his work on the new £5 note, told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme he wanted to preserve the building and its historic significance.
“It’s going to be a big change for me.
I can’t wait to see what it’s going [be].”
I think it’s the perfect place to put it,” he added.
