Hallfield Estate by marcszar

This is a BAT (actually two BATs) of the Hallfield Estate housing project in the City of Westminster, UK. The project was built in two phases- from 1951-1955 and from 1955-1958. Hallfield Estate was initially designed by Berthold Lubetkin of the Tecton architecture practice, and built later by Lasdun and Drake in an area that was then still a suburb of London. The strong Constructivist style of the Estate (reflected particularly in the design of the staggered window facade on the larger blocks) reflects their unique perception of the Modernist architectural movement of that era. The Estate is composed of fifteen housing blocks and still serves its original purpose- providing affordable housing to whoever needs it- quite well. Hallfield Estate was designated a conservation area by the Westminster Council in 1990.
