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.
