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.

New estate informational/instructional signage & UPDATE 21st June 2008

Above is the final artwork for the new signs.
As you can see, they're pretty close to the visual below. I think the grey border adds a touch of sophistication. Fortunately it is a Hackney Homes palette colour, as is the orange and green.
Hope you like them.
Within the next couple of weeks I hope to see all 24 new signs up around the estate.

The above is to show the alteration to the Beecholme logo rather than the design of this particular sign, namely the addition of "THE" and "ESTATE".

The general layout will probably remain the same though the colour of the background and flat no's may change.

The above is one of the "informational" signs, the "instructional" sign being signs such as "Strictly No Ball Games".

The idea is to coordinate all the estate signage both in style and colour while retaining the information/instruction delineation.

The signage was discussed recently at our TRA AGM.
I will be asking for the go-ahead for my final designs from the TRA committee members over the next week.

If you are a resident and have a view about the estate signage please
contact me, David White (secretary B&C TRA)
