Mosaic House, front - Treatment Rooms

Inscription

The Treatment Rooms, 2002 - now, lots of people lived here and partied hard.
English Hedonists

This project became known as the Treatment Rooms after a sign which came from a Hackney mental institute.

Site: Mosaic House, front (6 memorials)

W4, Fairlawn Grove, 4-6

This house is/was the home of artist Carrie Reichardt. Across the top of the first floor bay window: "I'm an artist, your rules don't apply".

The back wall of the house and its garden, on Cunnington Street, is equally worth a visit. The whole artwork, started by Carrie Reichardt and her partner at the time, Thayen Rich, came together over a 20 year period. From 2008 you can watch it develop on Google Streetview. Inspiring City is a very good introduction to the details of the artwork. In the absence of any other information we have ascribed all the art work to Reichardt, but understand that many artists have been involved.

This house has been known as the Treatment Rooms and nearby there is a Treatment Rooms 2.

One would expect the neighbours to be, at the least, equivocal about the artwork that landed in their midst but the front garden wall of the house immediately opposite has a skirting board of mosaic in a similar style as that on the house, depicting a child-friendly scene. We take this to indicate some approval, which is confirmed by the video at Reichardt's website.
