105/27 Rossetti House Millbank
5.2.70 Estate
LCC housing estate block of flats. 1897-1902, part of one of the first and
most significant of the LCC estates by the Architects' Department housing
section under Owen Fleming and , more particularly in this case,
R. Minton Taylor who was probably responsible for the estate layout
radiating from a rectangular public garden. Red brick with slight stone
and rendered dressings, tiled roofs. Humane, Arts and Crafts socialist
housing design inspired by Webb, Lethaby and Smith and Brewer with "Queen
Anne" features, all executed to high standards. Flanking central
St. Oswulf Street axis. 5 storeys. 18 windows wide with broad centre
break and terminal pavilion to St. Oswulf Street. Recessed cornice-hooded
porches in courtyard elevation. Segmental arched glazing bar sashes with
exposed box frames, grouped to express interior distribution. Top floor
rendered with casements. Dormers above flat eaves of hipped roofs. The
block balances its symmetrical twin Romney House, on the other side of
St. Oswulf Street. (c.f. Boundary Street Estate, Tower Hamlets.)
