Trellick Tower Building – info added 27 Feb 2016
Notorious in the decades following its completion, Trellick Tower epitomized the stereotype of crime-ridden and poorly maintained post-war social housing schemes in Britain. However, in recent years the scheme has seen a miraculous change of fortune. Granted Grade II* listing in 1998, followed by a government funded £17 million renovation by John McAslan & Partners, this monumental Tower block has rapidly become one of London’s Brutalist icons.
Goldfinger’s design is based on his earlier and slightly smaller Balfron Tower (in Poplar, east London), and is in effect a sibling building. It has a long, thin profile, with a separate lift and service tower linked at every third storey to the access corridors in the main building; flats above and below the corridor levels have internal stairs.
