Trellick Tower is an amazing brutalist architectural relic, located in Kensal Town in North London. Designed by Erno Goldfinger, it was commissioned by the Greater London Council in 1966 and was completed in 1972. At 98 metres tall it has 31 stories and is Grade ll listed. The shot is along the side of the almost free-standing stair/lift-well and services tower, linked to the main building every third storey. The design is based on Goldfinger’s earlier and slightly smaller Balfron Tower in Poplar.
