A programme of repairs and restoration at Camden's Grade II* listed Alexandra Road Estate.
Neave Brown of Camden's Department of Architecture and Surveying conceived the design of the Alexandra Road Estate in 1968. When complete in 1979 the reinforced concrete structure contained 520 flats, houses and maisonettes in 3 parallel blocks.
The estate is the most extensive exposition of Camden's modernist approach to housing design in the 1970s and achieved high density with predominantly low rise housing, whilst providing a four acre central park. It also includes extensive communal facilities. The buildings were Grade 2* listed in 1993.
Levitt Bernstein was commissioned to resolve detailed design issues and led the completion of a "warm & dry" programme of works.
Working with Neave Brown we have repaired sensitive details, ensuring its long term future and significantly improving the environment for all its residents.
