A VISIT TO 2 WILLOW ROAD
Friday 20 July 2018

Cost: £8.50

Maximum No: 24

Designed by acclaimed architect Ernö Goldfinger in 1939, this unique and surprising Modernist home was inhabited by four generations of his family.

 

The house paints a vivid picture of the urban creative and social circles of the mid-20th century through Goldfinger’s modern art collection, innovative designs and intriguing personal possessions.

This is a private general tour of 2 Willow Road and offers a fascinating insight into the life and work of an important figure of the British Modern Movement and includes a short film with archive footage.

Those members who came to the AGM in March will remember a most interesting talk on this property by Geoff Stevens, one of the volunteers, and he will be one of the guides on the day.  

Meet just outside Hampstead underground station on the Northern Line – Edgware Branch - at 10.40am for about a ten minute (downhill) walk to the property ready for an 11.00am start.  Please note that if a train is not signalled on the Edgware Branch you should take the first train and change at Camden Town.
