American Friends are welcome to join us for a visit to Neave Brown’s seminal Alexandra Road Estate and Alexandra Centre in South Kilburn on Wednesday 11 April 2018.

We will celebrate Neave Brown being awarded the 2018 Royal Gold Medal by visiting his visionary Grade II* listed 1970s Alexandra Road Estate. With its striking stepped concrete terraces and spacious flats, in Neave’s own words it’s “a piece of city”. We will visit the Alexandra Centre – a care home for young people with learning difficulties, renovated by RIBA chartered architects, Haverstock, and take a tour of the public park. We are then invited in by the owners of to two private apartments – one which retains all of the original features, and one newly refurbished and sensitively restored.
