Mawdley House, Webber Row LCC Estate
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 to the rear
of block. Roof of tile.
EXTERIOR: 5 storeys or 4 storeys with dormers; balconies to
rear elevations, giving access to flats; stair towers. There
are gabled ranges to Waterloo Road, with recessed sections
forming balcony at 2nd-floor level. These recessed ranges are
articulated by brick piers, a most unusual feature for LCC
housing. The intermediate ranges terminating in 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. Remains of sign fascias to
INTERIOR: not inspected.
The five 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 LCC 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.
