Finsbury Health Centre

The Finsbury Health Centre, built in 1935-38, was designed by Berthold Lubetkin and the Tecton architecture practice. The design shares some of its materials and detailing with similar Lubetkin projects of the period, including the Priory Green, Spa Green and Hallfield Estates.

Partly restored in the mid 1990's, the building is Grade I listed.
