When first built, the entrance to each block on the Fitzhugh Estate had a wall of patterned ceramic tiles, same design but each with a reconfigured graphic pattern. Over the years these have been stripped away so that now there are only two blocks remaining with them. Do you know who may have designed them?
Clues discovered are that architect Oliver Cox was involved with the building of the estate. Cox was very keen to include murals and sculptures by young artists on new housing being built by the London County Council in the 1950s. He had also created a mural himself for St Crispin’s School in Wokingham. Perhaps it was his design?
