Off-the-Frame Brickwork: Winterton House, London

Winterton House at Watney Market in London’s East End is a 25-storey building which contained a cocktail of 1960s ‘horror’ stories. The only element worth keeping was the steel frame, and even that needed enhancing to support floors heavy enough to comply with modern building regulations. It was nevertheless necessary to keep the tower block to avoid the consequent loss of housing units. A.B. Bird and M.J. Hitchens
