Repost this day in 2017:
Former #BPHouse, #StKildaRoad, 1963-65 Demaine Russell, Trundle Armstrong & Orton – is getting (another) make over. Think it was originally white then made beige in the 90s when turned into apartments, now white again. Unfortunately the piers and side walls that were brown brick were rendered over in beige, now going charcoal, so white and charcoal, very now colours. Old photo Graeme Butler, 1967. It’s unusual amongst postwar towers, being a tiny bit Frank Lloyd Wright, quite solid, with a pattern in the balustrades.
