Arlington House, Margate, Kent, UK (circa 1964).
The Arlington House development was greeted with much fanfare when it was proposed in the early 1960s, as the prominent site had long been dilapidated, giving new visitors a poor first impression when they left the train station (see artist’s impression). The block of 142 flats and shopping arcade were completed in 1963. The scale of the 19 storey building was unprecedented for Margate and it was probably Russell Diplock Associates’ most famous commission.
Over the years, the building has polarised the opinion of Margate’s population and its future now hangs in the balance. View high resolution
