20TH CENTURY BUILDINGS IN ISLINGTON
For thousands of Islington residents, a Day flat was the first step on the property ladder. Between 1956 and 1972 around a hundred of these blocks of flats were built. Designed for owner occupiers, they mostly occupied in-fill sites resulting from wartime bomb damage. The flats have attracted their share of eccentrics, and hence this eccentric book from former society chair Andrew Bosi. The book traces the development of the flats and the changes that have taken place since the building program came to an end. Each block is listed alphabetically with a brief description.
AN ARCHITECT IN ISLINGTON
Harley Sherlock was been dedicated to urban housing design in London for most of his working life. His architectural practice, Andrews Sherlock & Partners, formed in the 1950’s as an experiment in living and working on co-operative lines, gained awards from the Ministry of Housing and from the Civic Trust, winning them work in the public sector on low-rise, high-density housing and on the rehabilitation of nineteenth-century streets.
