TQ2680 : Corringham, Craven Hill Gardens

taken 7 years ago, near to Paddington, Westminster, Great Britain

Corringham, Craven Hill Gardens
Corringham, Craven Hill Gardens
A curtain-walled block which, at least at first glance, resembles a typical 1960s office slab, but is in fact a block of flats. A well-groomed building by Kenneth Frampton and Douglas Stephen & Partners, 1961-62. It even has its own website on which it states that its "unique scissor design allows all flats to have west-facing living rooms with sunset views, while all bedrooms overlook the quiet communal gardens." The listing observes that "on the exterior this complexity is only hinted at by the split-level escape stair on the southern elevation" (TQ2680 : Detail of Corringham, Craven Hill Gardens). Grade II listed.
The concrete service tower was stained by nothing more serious than a recent heavy shower.
