The foyer of #DuCaneCourt in #Balham, southeast London. This 1937 #artdeco apartment block miraculously survived the WWII blitzkrieg leading some people to believe that Hitler had earmarked the property to be SSHQ and his own private residence when the Nazis took the UK. Other people suggest that the building resembles a swastika from the air and acted as a prominent landmark for the Luftwaffe conducting bombing runs. 🛩🚀 #atlasobscura #aoarchitecture #artdecoarchitecture #artdecoigers #flatliving #artdecoflats #artdecobuildings #artdecointeriors #artdecostaircase #londonbuildings
