Blenheim Gardens Estate is a beautifully maintained and living example of the 1960s public housing vision of Ted Hollamby.
London in the 1950s and ’60s was facing a public housing crisis as a consequence of the destruction from World War II and the growing urban population. Driven by government housing density targets, many new-build developments resorted to high-rise blocks, with the accompanying undesired consequence of a loss of community feeling.
