History of Keeling House
---------------------------------------
Designed and built in 1957 by Sir Denys Louis Lasdun. Lasdun was concerned that earlier modernist designs did not take sufficient account of what made neighbourhoods work. He sought to give residents a sense of place and belonging, replicating the good relations between neighbours which he noticed in traditional Victorian terraced streets. Each dwelling was a maisonette rather than a flat, similar inside to an East End house. Unlike a flat slab or tower block, he designed Keeling House with four wings that each look onto another, encouraging contact between neighbours. Between the central lift tower and the front doors of the apartments, tenants had to pass communal 'drying areas' for laundry and storage, where he hoped that social interchange would be as natural as in the streets below. However, he also designed the homes for privacy; the balconies face outward and do not look onto one another.

In 1993, the building was designated a Grade II listed building; it was the first example of post-war council housing to receive this designation. In 1999 it was sold to a private developer and converted into luxury apartments. Key features of the renovation include a striking glass foyer with external water feature designed by local architects Munkenbeck and Marshall. The redevelopment won an RIBA Award in 2002 and a Civic Trust commendation.
