SOUTHWARK

TQ3179 WEBBER ROW
636-1/4/843 (South side)
Delarche House, Webber Row LCC
Estate

GV II

Block of flats with shops. 1905-6. By the LCC Architects'
Department and attributed by Susan Beattie to Roger Stark.
MATERIALS: red brick in Flemish bond, stone copings and
dressings. Glazed brick to recessed balcony ranges on rear of
block. Roof of tile.
PLAN: rectangular.
EXTERIOR: 5 storeys or 4 storeys with dormers; balconies to
rear elevations, giving access to flats; stair towers. The
roof has broad, sweeping eaves carried on elegant metal
brackets, a feature repeated on each of the 5 parallel blocks
forming this estate.
All openings are either flat- or segmental-arched, with sash
windows of authentic design.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The 5 blocks, consisting of Mawdley House, Dauncey House,
Algar House, Delarche House and Overy House (qqv), all follow
a roughly similar design, having the same overall plan (one
side balconied, the other not), 4 storeys, and are constructed
from the same range of materials.
Although the design of each individual block bears some
resemblance to the LC Boundary Estate (London Borough of Tower
Hamlets), which was being completed when Stark joined the
Council Architects' Department, the Webber Row Estate has a
strongly individual character which was very likely introduced
by the architect.
