This blank card features the Isokon Building and is the perfect gift for anyone who loves London architecture.
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.
The design is digitally printed on to 300gsm FSC certified card and comes packaged in a biodegradeable cellophane wallet.
