Designs for the Spa Green Estate, Rosebery Avenue, Finsbury, London: details of the Garchey system for refuse disposal

RIBA94357
Skinner Bailey & Lubetkin
NOTES: The Spa Green Estate initiated a mass housing programme for the London borough of Finsbury. The design as executed differed little from that first proposed by Tecton to the Borough Council in 1938 although this was conceived as part of a much wider plan to provide the borough with a whole range of much needed facilities, including the Finsbury Health Centre. Immediately after World War II the Finsbury Plan was abandoned and efforts were concentrated on alleviating the chronic housing shortage. The design for the estate was a development of the one which Tecton had submitted to the competition for working-class flats in 1935 and incorporated a number of new features including the Garchey system for refuse disposal (used in England only once before - at Quarry Hill, Leeds), and an aerofoil-shaped section in the roof to allow clothes to dry. This latter idea was developed in conjunction with the scientist, Hyman Levy. The estate was completed in 1950 by Skinner Bailey & Lubetkin.

Nash, John (1752-1835)

Designs for Rosneath, Strathclyde, for the 5th Duke of Argyll: plan and sections of the main drain for the house (third design)

RIBA96985
Bonomi, Joseph (1739-1808)
NOTES: The first design for a 'villa' at Rosneath is dated November 1802 and consists of plans and sections of a compact house with a porte cochere on the entrance front and a semi-circular portico on the garden front. The second design for Rosneath is for an enlarged version of the first scheme. This stage of the design is represented by an important series of working drawings for the house dated January-July 1803. A number of alterations and additions were made to the second design between April-November 1804. In the third (and final) design a sunken court is extended so as to surround the house. The interior of the house and the proposals for the elevations remained unaltered from Bonomi's second design with alterations of April to November 1804. Rosneath was never completed according to Bonomi's design following the death of the 5th Duke of Argyll in 1806. The 6th Duke's straitened circumstances halted the building work in 1810 and the fitting up of the interiors of the house continued fitfully until 1820 with Ignatius Bonomi supervising the work after his father's death in 1808. The house was demolished in 1961.

Competition designs for the Pauper Schools, Kirkdale, Liverpool: ventilation and drainage plan

RIBA97703
Elmes, Harvey Lonsdale (1814-1847)
NOTES: In the early 1840s Liverpool was looking to create a school for pauper juveniles away from the heart of the city where they could be trained for useful occupations - the boys for various trades and the girls for domestic service ÔÇô and to keep them from the bad influences of the streets or the adult workhouse. ElmesÔÇÖs design was unsuccessful and the Liverpool Industrial Schools (as it was called) was built between 1843-1845 on Westminster Road, Kirkdale, to the designs of Lockwood & Allom, opening on 1 May 1845.

Working drawings for the Royal Victoria Pavilion, Harbour Parade, Ramsgate, for the Corporation of Ramsgate: drainage plan

RIBA97768
Adshead, Stanley Davenport (1868-1946)
NOTES: The building was said to have been built in six weeks in order to open for the summer season. Once a lively space on the seafront housing a concert hall, assembly rooms and refreshment areas, over the years it became neglected with its open arcade infilled and balconies and decorative features removed. The building has now been restored and re-opened as a pub.
