Wallis Gilbert & Partners

Wallis, Gilbert and Partners était un cabinet d'architecture britannique qui fut à l'initiative de création de différents bâtiments Art déco en Grande-Bretagne dans les années 1920 et 1930. Il fut créé par Thomas Wallis (1873-1953) ie 1914. Bien que l'identité de Gilbert ne fut jamais établie, le partenariat inclua plus tard Douglas Wallis (1901-68) et J. W. MacGregor (?-1994).
