Keeling House


Keeling House East London

Value: £4m

Client: Lincoln Holdings Plc

Construction: 1999 - 2000

Originally designed by Sir Denys Lasdun, this tower block was built in 1959 as 64 low cost stacked maisonettes for Tower Hamlets Council. The main problem with the project like so many of its era was access. The lift was completely external and could be approached for any corner of the site. For this reason the ground level and lift entrance was open to strangers and vandals and was not a pleasant setting for this unusual building. As well as updating the flats, we provided a new design for the landscaping and entrance lobby, which sits under a floating aluminium wing. This is accessed by crossing a reflective pool which forms part of an extensive new garden. The furniture in the lobby was designed by the architects.
All flats are now sold and inhabited. The scheme was awarded a RIBA Award in 2002.
