  • Parson's House, London

Other Information

  • In 1988 Parsons House was the first refurbished council tower in London with Peter Bell's cladding system showing that rundown tower blocks could be successfully refurbished and breathed back to life.
  • With aluminium panels replacing brick and chosen for their longevity, and vertical red go-faster stripes that serve as a maintenance rails but scream eighties, the building was transformed into the piece of post-modernism it is today.
  • Renovation of the building was however complex and driven by the fact it was in such poor condition the windows were literally in danger of falling out.
  • The council desired the architect to replace the old exterior of the building from scaffolding on the outside rather than go into peoples homes to maintain their privacy and thus new windows and insulation were placed over the existing ones, and the contractors then removed the old ones from the inside once the cladding was in place.
