New social housing designed by Studio Partington
The City of London is set to approve the creation of three new flats at the landmark block on the Golden Lane Estate, designed by Barbican architects Chamberlin Powell and Bon in the 1950s.
Proposals set for approval at the next meeting of the corporation’s planning and transportation committee would convert administration and community rooms on the ground floor of grade II-listed Great Arthur House into new social housing.
Project architect Studio Partington said the building’s original designers had always intended for the ground level and basement of Great Arthur House to contrast with the upper level of the building, and had set the levels back from the upper floors of the building and finished them in darker materials.
