Two 22-storey tower blocks in Hackney were demolished at the weekend, creating 44,000 tonnes of rubble. The blowdown on the Nightingale Estate left three similar blocks standing. ECD Architects completed the refurbishment of one of these, Seaton Point, only last month, cladding the concrete structure in insulated acrylic render and glazing external balconies. The demolished blocks will be replaced by 235 new houses and low-rise flats by Watkins Grey International.
