Great Arthur House, Golden Lane Estate, London EC1

Client: City of London Corporation

John Robertson Architects and Mott MacDonald have been appointed by the City of London Corporation to design a replacement curtain wall for Great Arthur House, a Grade II listed landmark building, part of the Golden Lane Estate designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon in 1956. Influenced by the work of Le Corbusier, the design of the Estate was regarded from the outset as a model of social integration with early tenants including doctors, police officers, secretaries, cleaners and caretakers, and an emphasis on one bedroom flats for single people and couples.
