10 Palace Gate

View of 10 Palace Gate

10 Palace Gate is an apartment block located in Palace Gate, in the Kensington area of London, England, designed by Wells Coates.

Completed in 1939 for the builder Randall Bell, the building is a Modernist structure in the tradition of Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, both of whom influenced Coates' work.[citation needed] Coates applied his own three-two system of spatial layout within this building for the first time, an idea he used to create variety within the units. The design, which divides the building into floors at various heights, enables the public spaces to be large and with high ceilings, while private portions of the flat such as bedrooms, bathrooms, service rooms and corridors were smaller in scale.[citation needed]

The building is Grade II* listed.[1]
