One of the blocks comprising the Spa Green Estate. The buildings on the estate are Grade II listed, and are the work of Tecton (architects Francis Skinner and Berthold Lubetkin). Built 1943-1950 the Spa Green Estate, commissioned by the radical Finsbury Borough Council,is described by John Allan in his book "Berthold Lubetkin" (London: Merrell, 2002) in glowing terms - "Rightly listed, the first and best of Lubetkin and Tecton's post-war housing schemes set a standard in architectural and technical accomplishment unmatched by any contemporary". The nearby estates, Priory Green and Bevin Court, are also by the same architects. For more on Berthold Lubetkin visit LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
