Description


TQ 2978 NE CITY OF WESTMINSTER JOHN ISLIP STREET, SW1
105/42
Landseer House, Millbank
5.2.70 Estate
G.V. II
LCC housing estate block of flats. 1897-1902, part of one of the first and
most significant of the LCC estates by the Architects' Department housing
section under Owen Fleming and , more particularly in this case,
R. Minton Taylor who was probably responsible for the estate layout
radiating from a rectangular public garden. Red brick with slight stone
dressings, tiled roofs. Human, Arts and Crafts socialist housing design
inspired by Webb, Lethaby and Smith and Brewer with "Queen Anne" and
Northern European features, all executed to a high standard. Shallow L plan
block with north wing at right angles to John Islip Street, with courtyard
elevations. 5 storey gabled pavilion wings and 4 storeys and attic between
them. Cornice-hooded recessed porches to north courtyard. Segmental
arched flush framed glazing bar sashes, tripartite on ground floor, grouped
to express interior distribution. Dormers above overhanging eaves. The
block balances its twin Mulready House in the group north of the garden.
(c.f. Boundary Street Estate, Tower Hamlets).
