The management company has done a good job of updating this stark but elegant set of buildings in Richmond. The development does feel dense and the garden is definitely to look at rather than play in. The original objective of the developers was to provide the maximum number of flats at low rents but still with good space standards and all mod cons. The flats range from studios to three bedrooms and are arranged off four cores around a central courtyard, with continuous galleried access. The cores have very generous entrance halls, originally containing telephone booths and electric clocks. There are shops on the Sheen Road frontage (17 originally) as well as a large garage with its own petrol pumps. The contractor was Bovis Ltd.
