Flats designed by Wells Coates for Molly and Jack Pritchard. Originally the block had 32 flats (later extended to 36). Most of them had very small kitchens as there was a large communal one for the preparation of meals, connected to the residential floors via a dumb waiter. The building gradually deteriorated, and was temporarily abandoned until 2003, when it was refurbished.
As well as those listed on the blue plaque, early residents included: Egon Riss, Arthur Korn; Agatha Christie (here 1941–7), Adrian Stokes.
