More about Beecholme
Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Video of design protocols in context
Here's a 2 minute video about the need for repairs and additions to match or blend in with the style of architecture. The Protocols and "Gold Standard" are also available to download at the very bottom of this blog - click on the page you want and then rigth click and choose "save as", to your desktop. Hope you like it, it was rather thrown together as much to try out Mac's "keynote" program in iWork '08 as anything else. Still, it might be of some use!
You can download the "Gold Standard" and "Design Protocols" as A4 documents further below.
