Redevelopment of art deco gem – Tower House, Lewisham

Building Design Magazine has reported that  Barr Gazetas has won consent to convert the 1930s Tower House former department store. The building will receive a two storey roof extension.

You can see Barr Gazetas proposed restoration of the front of the building here.

It is a shame that the opportunity has not been taken to reinstall the stunning neon decoration which once covered the front as seen in this 1933 video of the opening ceremony. This would create a real architectural landmark for Lewisham.tower_house
