In March 2003, London Time Out magazine produced an Art Deco issue to coincide with the Art Deco 1910-1939 Exhibition at the V & A.
The feature was a small booklet feature the Deco 100 which described Neville House as 'admittedly undistinguished 1930s apartment block'. In fact the only reason that Neville House was mentioned was because of the Paviours Arms, a deco pub on the ground floor.
Back in 2003, the owners of the building had planning permission to redevelop (demolish) the site to provide 93 modern flats and 2 shop.
By all accounts the pub was a deco gem but it wasn't open when I visited.
And Neville House? I can't actually remember the building but it did have this series of reliefs on the facade.
I presume Neville House, the Paviours Arms and the reiefs have all gone now. I wonder did the built something good to replace them.
