London Palace Gate Card
This blank card features Well’s Coates’ Palace Gate and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves Modernist architecture.
An apartment block in London’s Kensington area, designed by Wells Coates. Completed in 1939 it is a Modernist structure in the tradition of Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, both of whom had influence on Coates’ work. Coates applied his own three-two system of spatial layout within this building for the first time, an idea he used to create variety within the units. The generous design, which divides the building into floors at various heights, enables the public spaces to be large and with high ceilings, while private portions of the flat such as bedrooms, bathrooms, service rooms and corridors were smaller in scale.
