New Ideas for Housing – Great Arthur House at the NLA

JRA enjoyed a champagne reception and private view at The Building Centre last night as part of the New Ideas for Housing Exhibition, which features our current work on Grade II Listed Great Arthur House.

The Housing Showcase forms part of NLA’s Insight Study ‘New Ideas for Housing’, a six month programme exploring ways to improve the speed, scale and quality of the housing supply in London through research, new ideas and current best practice.

Great Arthur House is a 17 storey residential tower that forms part of the Golden Lane Estate designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, also known for designing the neighbouring Barbican estate. JRA are currently restoring the Grade II listed residential tower block with plans to replace the existing curtain wall; replicating the iconic original designs while upgrading the facade to modern standards.

The exhibition is on display at The Building Centre galleries from 15th October – 17th December, showcasing the best examples of housing projects within Greater London and is accompanied with publications featuring the Project Showcase, NLA insight Study, as well as a series of talks and lectures.
