Ernö Goldfinger’s 27-storey Balfron Tower in East London had fallen into disrepair and out of favour. Guided by Goldfinger’s original vision, Studio Egret West has worked with developer Telford Homes, Historic England and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to bring the Grade II Listed tower into the twenty-first century. Our ‘conservation informed’ approach respects the Brutalist architecture whilst providing a second life for the Tower, making it relevant to today’s society.
