Hightrees House in Clapham is similar to many blocks of flats in central London. Often they are constructed of brick with balconies and/or entrances rendered in a contrasting colour.
In the case of Hightrees House, the whole of the ground floor is white, as are the balconies above the main entrance and on the projecting wings.
There is also a top level of white coloured buildings which could be a later addition.
The balconies are curved at each end and taper, becoming smaller the higher they are placed on the building.
Elsewhere on the building, the balconies are more elaborate which glassed-in sections although they still taper towards the upper floors.
There are also a series of small balconies which have been built at a constant width on each floor.
