The Idea of the Modern Home – Neave Brown in N19
Monday 19th October 2020 7.30 pm
Architect David Porter reviews the first independent work by renowned architect Neave Brown (2018 Royal Gold Medal winner), designed as a cooperative for his family and that of four friends. Now listed Grade II, “The house plans [at Winscombe Street]- devised with Brown’s characteristic mastery of domestic space – embody various innovative features and reflect a distinctive, community-spirited vision of home life.” (English Heritage)
The scheme acted as a prototype for Brown’s other celebrated housing including the Alexandra Road estate which was grade II*-listed in 1993, becoming the first post-war council housing estate to be listed.
