Living in a flat, 1930s style - and an appeal to save historic buildings

By kind permission of

Some weeks ago I heard about a 1930s enclave of flats called Northview that risked being blighted by a hideous extra storey built on top of the roof. Last week I was informed that in spite of residents' opposition, this might go ahead, despite being refused planning permission in the past. This new build on top of a characterful period building is bound to destroy original features, including parapets and deco banisters.

The residents are trying to get as much support from local councillors, amenity and other local groups, so if you can help, please get in touch. also has a very interesting article called Living in a flat, 1930s style, which might be of interest to those of you who live in a 1930s apartment. Famous fans include world-famous detective Hercule Poirot, who lives in an Art-Deco apartment in central London.
