Ashcroft Square Estate, Hammersmith London


Date Built
King Street
Ashcroft Squae is a large housing estate comprising seven blocks arranged around a central garden/courtyard on top of a shopping centre designed by Richard Seifert.  The estate is bound on one side by King Street (a main Hammersmith shopping streeet), and on the other by an above-ground section of the Hammersmith and City underground railway.  The rectangular shaped residential blocks are built of brick and concrete.  The estate and the shopping centre it sits above used to be connected by bridges over the railway to a multi-storey car park.  The car park is no more.  It has been demolished to make way for a new residential development.  There are plans to refurbish the shopping mall and suggestions that the estate should also be replaced, an idea that apparently hasn't been met with approval by the residents.
