The late Neave Brown was the architect with the vision and commitment to create the Alexandra Road Estate in Camden. Awarded Grade II* listing in 1993, this was a low-level council estate built at the time when high-rise living was thought to be the solution to mass housing. The estate curves to closely follow the tracks of the railway line. The back of block almost overhangs the railway line to give each of the apartments their own terrace garden. Below ground are garages and utility areas reached from integrated stairs from each level of apartments. The estate is surprisingly quiet. The foundations of the tallest block next to the railway line rest on rubber blocks to avoid vibration. Most of the roof terrace balconies are spilling over with planting softening the concrete.
Location: Rowley Way, London NW8 0SW, UK
