George Finch for Lambeth Architect's Department
Lambeth Towers by George Finch for Lambeth Architect’s Department was designed in 1964, approved in 1965 with building completed in 1972.
Built on a site opposite the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Towers is considered by many to be Finch’s masterpiece. Flats over ten stories provided affordable, high quality housing, set over a doctor’s surgery and a lunch club for the elderly. The ingenious section of stacked maisonettes gives each dwelling dual aspect and its own balcony. Each flat was individually articulated within a cranked concrete frame that maximised the tight site, creating a strong, square patterning.
