Becontree Parlour

Celebrating the centenary of the Becontree Estate as an archive of its construction, domestic life and suburban streetscape. The Parlour is a common feature of the Becontree house, a front room with a homely feel for neighbours to meet, and is defined by the porch, fireplace and stair. Commissioned by LB Barking & Dagenham the installation was part of the Becontree Forever Festival and has now found a new home at Valence Primary School.
