This is a very small (formerly the garage of the Isokon building) gallery Isokon is a Modernist building of note and is Grade 1 listed. It has an amazing history well documented inside the gallery. Former residents included Agatha Christie, a number of Soviet spies...More

This is a fantastic modernist building and it's had a fascinating history, which is told in the small gallery/museum, located in what used to be the garage. There is plenty to read, particularly about the creation of the building itself and its former residents, and...More

There is not a lot to see in this museum, which is the former garage space of the building. However, what IS there is interesting and educational. There are very descriptive signs to accompany the photos around the museum, and there are a few samples...More

This small but excellent gallery follows the building and subsequent history of the Lawn Road flats - an experiment in middle class social living in the mid 1930s with close links to the modernist movement of the Bauhaus. Rescued from almost total disintegration in 2000...More

This 1930s Modernist building stands out from others on a street in lower Hampstead. It's pure white, sleek and streamlined with long strips of balconies, and it looks like the side of one of those Trans-Atlantic ocean liners that people sailed back and forth on...More

The Isokon Gallery, currently open on weekends (Lawn Road, Hampstead/London) is part of a development created in 1934: at the heart of the dwelling was the attempt to provide the right environment for minimalist urban living. The small Gallery explains the history, use of materials...More
