Florin Court
   

Art deco houses and flats were mostly owned by the rich or members of the middle classes, although there was some municipal rented housing built in the style. This section looks at examples of both middle- and upper-class properties. Florin Court, designed by Guy Morgan and Partners and opened in 1936, is an impressive deco apartment block, and the fictional home of the TV detective Hercules Poirot. It has an undulating exterior and a roof garden, and in the 1980s a retro deco basement swimming pool was built. Unfortunately, the deco foyer was tiled over in the 1980s.
