“Stoneleigh Terrace II - Whittington Estate”, London, N19 [1973-1978] _ Architect: Peter Tabori _ Photographs by Spyros Kaprinis [18.09.2021]
“The Metropolitan Boroughs of St. Pancras, Holborn and Hampstead merged to become Camden in 1965. Under the stewardship of Sydney Cook, the new borough quickly became renowned for its radical housing.
Cook appointed a ‘dream team’ of architects working out of Holborn Town Hall, led by Neave Brown. These included Peter Tabori, who was born in Hungary in 1942 and studied at the Regent Street Polytechnic. When he was a student, he asked the local authority for a diploma project and was given the brief for Highgate New Town (Whittington Estate).
After working for Ernö Goldfinger and Denys Lasdun, Tabori joined Camden Architects Department – Sydney Cook had been so impressed by Tabori’s student work that he was employed to develop it into the final scheme. The estate was built between 1973 and 1978 overlooking the cemetery. It comprises six terraces with strong horizontal lines of balconies and cornices and vertical cross walls. Between each terrace is a pedestrian walkway, with trees and shrubs to soften the architecture.
One of the key figures in the development of Camden Council’s ‘golden age’ of progressive social-housing in the 1970s, Peter Tabori is best known for his distinctive ziggurat-style estates.
Born in Hungary in 1942, Tabori moved to London to study at the Regent Street Polytechnic. As a student, Tabori asked the local authority for a diploma project and was given the brief for Highgate New Town. After working for Ernö Goldfinger and Denys Lasdun, Tabori joined Camden Architects Department – the borough architect Sydney Cook had been so impressed by Tabori’s student work that he was employed to develop it into the final scheme.
Tabori’s designs developed Neave Brown’s principles of estate housing which centred around individual front doors and private open spaces, resulting in the distinctive stepped apartments which can be seen on the Whittington Estate and at Oakshott Court in Somers Town.”
