G.V. II*
LCC housing estate block of flats. 1899-1902 by Spalding and Cross, as the
result of a competition held by the Council in conjunction with their
Architects' Department housing section development of the Millbank Estate.
One of the earliest and most significant of the LCC estates. Red brick
with slight stone dressings and some rendering,slate roofs. Webb, Lethaby
and Smith and Brewer inspired, humane, socialist Arts and Crafts housing
with restrained use of "Queen Anne" and Northern European motifs. Hogarth
House is the central block of the radial layout of the estate. Half H plan
with polygonal corner turrets and shaped and straight gables. 5 storeys
plus a dormered mansard storey. 11 window range with 3 window wings with
turrets to inner angles. The main range has doorways, between the narrow
and broad through-storey canted bays flanking the centrepice, set back in
recessed porches with stone faced splayed sides and pent roofs over,
carried on shallow segmental stone arches between the canted bays. Varied
fenestration expresses interior distribution with cross-mullioned segmental
arched casements above the porches, 2 light casements to the narrow canted
bays, small stairlights,and tripartite and single glazing bar sashes to the
centre piece and the broader canted bays contained in through-storey,
shallow semicircular arched recesses. Parapets with copings, the straight
gables set back behind them and with a very large swept shaped gable over
the centre. Hogarth House was the first block to be started on site in
1899.
