TQ 2783 NW CITY OF WESTMINSTER CHARLBERT STREET, NW8
13/7
15.4.86 OSLO COURT

II
G.V.

Block of flats. 1937-38 by Robert Atkinson. Reinforced concrete and brick
infill and cladding; flat terrace roof. Long L-plan International Modern block,
planned in depth on narrow site between Charlbert and Culworth Streets with
narrow 2-bay end to Prince Albert Road and Regent's Park to south. Orientation
and depth of site govern ingenious planning with side elevations staggered at
angle such that each flat has private theatre box-like balcony to south, off
the return of its main window, benefitting from the view, at the same time
functionally expressing the cantilevered structure with the concrete exposed as
lintel and stepped balcony base and the cladding role of the brickwork subtly
indicated by the soldier course on the cantilever. 7 storeys. 9- and 7-bay
sides. Main entrance in splayed re-entrant angle, to Charlbert Street wing with
fully glazed lift-stair tower finished off with cantilevered canopy above roof
terrace; secondary entrances in 2nd and 3rd bays on Culworth and Charlbert
Streets respectively (diagonally linked internally) with concrete oculi above
lighting stairs. Crittal metal casements, bent around corner to Prince Albert
Road end.
