5.2.70 Bennett House, Grosvenor
Estate (with lodge and
gate piers)
Tenement courtyard block of flats. 1928-30; consultant
Sir Edwin Lutyens; part of the Westminster Housing Scheme for the Grosvenor
Estate. Grey brick and white rendered chequerboard external elevations
with grey brick and rendered access galleries to courtyard elevations,
spare stone dressings, concealed roofs. Stripped Georgian style. 6
storeys. 4-window wide ends to street with long returns enclosing
rectangular courtyard and single storey former lodges, square on plan,
flanking courtyard entrance with gate piers. Doorways on ground floor and
galleries of courtyard elevations. Flush framed glazing bar sashes.
Parapet copings finish off facades. The lodges each have 1 window, and an
oeil de boeuf in link, with pyramidal roofs; they are built out with gate
piers at right angles to street ends of long sides of block. An
imaginative Lutyens treatment of a standard LCC type of housing block.
