Google Earth Plug-in: Isokon building - Hampstead

Info Map Comments (1) Related Files


The Isokon building in Lawn Road, Hampstead, London is a concrete block of 34 flats designed by architect Wells Coates for Jack and Molly Pritchard. They were built between 1933 and 1934 as an experiment in communal living.
Pre-World War 2 residents included Walter Gropius (German architect and founder of Bauhaus), Marcel Breuer (influential modernist), Agatha Christie and László Moholy-Nagy (Hungarian painter and photographer as well as professor in the Bauhaus school).
The Isokon company folded during World War 2 and in 1972 the building was sold to Camden Council. It was refurbished by a housing association (Notting Hill Housing Group) in 2003.
The block has controversially been given Grade I listed status, despite being considered ugly by some people.
