Located on Lawn Road, Hampstead, London, the Isokon Building is a concrete block of 34 flats designed by architect Wells Coates in 1934 as an experiment in minimalist urban living. Most of the flats had very small kitchens with a large communal kitchen for the preparation of meals, connected to the residential floors via a dumb waiter. Services, including laundry and shoe-shining, were provided on site.
Early famous residents included: Bauhaus émigrés Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy; architects Egon Riss and Arthur Korn, Agatha Christie and Adrian stokes; Jack and Molly Pritchard lived in the penthouse. The communal kitchen was converted into the Isobar restaurant in 1937, to a design by Marcel Breuer. The flats and particularly the bar became renowned as a centre for intellectual life in North London. Regulars at the Isobar included Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson.
