contributed by davidb

Farrell & Grimshaw established their practice in 1965, and this is one of their first buildings. In its day it was considered highly innovative and it was the first residential project to feature a load-bearing central core housing all the kitchens and bathrooms. Consequently the floor plates are very flexible; there are only perimeter columns and the architects were able to offer over 70 variations in plan. The structural system allowed extensive glazing to take advantage of the views over Regent's Park. Externally the most unusual features are the rounded corners, featuring curved windows, and the use of industrial profiled metal cladding sheets. The scheme has 11 floors with 18 two bedroomed and 18 one bedroomed units, four doubled height penthouses on the top level and a caretaker's flat. Reinforcing the architect's conviction with the design, Nick Grimshaw lived in the building with his family for six years.
