including The Cock Tavern Public
House

GV II

Block of council flats and attached public house forming part
of the Ossulston Estate. 1929-30. To designs of the LCC
Architects' Department under G Topham Forrest. Load-bearing
brickwork rendered with coloured roughcast, ground floor
channelled to appear as stone; reinforced concrete balconies.
Hipped pantiled roofs with dormers and tall chimney-stacks.
EXTERIOR: flats: 5 storeys, attics and basement. Long range of
flats with central round-arched entrance with voussoirs and
keystone. Slightly recessed sashes with exposed boxing.
Parapet.
Public house: 3 storey and cellars. 4 windows and 6-window
return to Chalton Street. Similar style. Public house frontage
of transom and mullion windows with plate glass between
pillars; main entrance on chamfered ground floor angle.
INTERIORS: not inspected. This complex forms a group with
Chamberlain House, Phoenix Road (qv) and Levita House,
Ossulston Street including the Somers Town Coffee House (qv).
HISTORICAL NOTE: despite policy to house as many Londoners as
possible on outlying cottage estates pressure of waiting lists
and urgency of slum clearance forced Cecil Levita, Chairman of
the LCC Housing Committee to review the situation. The
Ossulston Estate is the most important inner-city estate of
the inter-war period, representing the most considered attempt
by the LCC to inject new thinking into inner-city housing
estates. It was influenced in particular by Viennese housing
models and was innovative in terms of layout and elevation.
