TRELLICK TOWER: ERNO GOLDFINGER 1972
Trellick Tower is a Grade II listed residential building built on the Cheltenham Estate in London. It was designed as a follow up to Goldfinger’s earlier Balfron Tower and was initially designed entirely freehand on butcher's paper.
It has a long, thin profile, with a separate lift and service tower linked at every third storey to the access corridors in the main building, which has 31 floors overall. As well as residential accommodation there are shops, offices, and a youth centre. Goldfinger ensured that quality materials were used in construction throughout, including high quality fixtures and finishing the balconies with cedarwood. It it was intended to be a leading example of good social accommodation as well as modernist design.
