13(b) Rowley Way, Abbey Road NW8 0SF
Often seen as the last ditch attempt to reconcile social housing with the minimal space of central London, architect Neave Brown’s 1979 council project, Alexandra Road is terraced housing reinterpreted with a modernist twist. A low-rise large density enclave nestled in the far-flung throes of North London, the complex is grade II listed, and has been maintained virtually identically as it was originally designed.%A
Alexandra Road is open for viewing on Saturday 19th September from 10am to 5pm. Regular tours are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis.
