Fakten

  • The Le Corbusier-influenced building is adjudged to be architect Wells Coates' finest achievement.
  • The building's clean lines resemble that of a pink-tinged ocean liner, being built from reinforced concrete with large metal-framed windows and cantilevered concrete balconies; rooms are partitioned by sliding plywood screens.
  • After the war the building was taken over by Camden London Borough Council and fell into near dereliction before being sold to the Notting Hill Housing Group and given a £2.3m renovation.
  • The renovation garnered the accolade of the Concrete Society Awards - Mature Structures award, 2004.
  • The building is Grade I Listed.
  • The building now offers 25 'affordable' apartments for key workers and 11 private apartments at prices up to £525,000.
  • Lawn Road Flats is regarded as one of the greatest examples of early Modernism in Britain.
  • The building was occupied by many leftward-leaning intellectuals and refugees such as the architects Marcel Breuer & Associates, Walter Gropius and Lazslo Moholy-Nagy and the architectural critic Diana Rowntree as well as the writer Agatha Christie.
  • Lawn Road Flats was designed to offer a new minimalist way of living with in-built furniture designed by the Isokon furniture company and a ground-floor restaurant and bar - 'Isobar' - designed by Marcel Breuer & Associates, which was gutted and turned into extra flats in the 1960s.
