The buildings are named after the architect, Richard Norman Shaw.

History

The foundation stone for the North building was laid by Prince Alfred on 16 December 1875, and the superstructure largely completed by September 1876. The building was occupied in November 1890.

Norman Shaw South was constructed in 1902-1906. Originally known as Scotland House.

The gates which separate the roadway between the two buildings from Derby Gate, and the Embankment, were designed by Sir Reginald Blomfield.
