Durrington and Amesbury Towers by ash Durrington and Amesbury Towers by ash
These twin blocks of council flats in Clapham are among my favourite buildings in London. I sometimes imagine buying a flat on the top floor of one and doing it up with wood floors and soft lighting. The views would be great

This seems to have been a successful design when the towers were built, as I've found two other pairs, identical in shape but different in colour and state of disrepair, in other parts of London. One pair is nearby in Battersea, and the other is in Canada Water.

[edit]

here are links to aerial photos of the three pairs I've seen, for anyone who's interested:

Nicely done, love the b&w, the buildings are so enhanced by it. The lines and contrasts are excellent, nice job.
