Weston Rise Estate, Weston Rise
Weston Rise Estate, Weston Rise
A Greater London Council estate by Howell, Killick, Partridge, and Amis, 1964-69. In plan it is five blocks linked by service towers roughly in a G-shape. All quite knobbly, with protuberances on each facade, and protruding access balconies. Pevsner notes that in the 1980s, the "aggressively brutalist concrete detail was disguised by painting". Still an interesting group, although I've no idea of the quality of accommodation.
