The Trellick Tower (above) was an answer to a London Slum Crisis.
It carried over features from it's older Sibling the Balfron Tower, which emerged in East London in 1963. Goldfinger reused many of the tried and tested design features.
The separate lift shaft and waste shoot were not just a pretty face. They kept noise away from the occupants.
The Trellick Tower is now a grade 2 listed building and those slum owners now live in homes worth £600,000 (est, they never come up for sale...)
An interesting book, written with enthusiasm for the subject, and a must for fans or students of architecture.
