Alton Estate point blocks from Richmond Park
Alton Estate point blocks from Richmond Park
The Alton Estate was designed by two competing teams in the London County Council Architect's Department. Alton East, seen here, took the form of point blocks in a Scandinavian style. Alton West, meanwhile, was designed as a more provocative homage to Le Corbusier's Unitť díHabitation building (Marseille), with long deck-access blocks layered along the hillside.
