technical & practice

On the north embankment of the Thames stands an eight-storey purpose- built apartment block, with Portland stone cladding, and pitched roofs with green slates. Designed by architects Archer and Green, it has internal lightwells and basement undercrofts which display cast-iron circular and 'H' section columns, riveted I section columns, clinker concrete filler- joist floors, and wi or ms rolled I section beams.

By constructing a specific chronology chart (above left) for these structural elements the era of the building is established as late Victorian, between 1880-1900. The actual construction was 1883-87.
