SITE DETAILS

Cundy Street Flats Gardens Westminster

Summary

On both sides of Cundy Street are blocks of flats in well-tended landscape settings. To the north is a development by T P Bennett of 1952 and to the south a series of 1930s blocks with curved balconies with curved brick and stone retaining walls at the entrances. Both estates have lawns with shrubberies at the margins. Nikolaus Pevsner described Cundy Street Flats as 'four generously spaced blocks. . . These funny creatures have the upright profiles and coloured cylindrical columns of the fifties, with the long rounded balconies of the thirties used to create a kind of vertical crenellation, and sashes of early Georgian pattern'.
