Isokon, Lawn Road Apartments


Avanti Architects in collaboration with Notting Hill Home Ownership Housing Association and the Isokon Trust won a competition sponsored by Camden Council to acquire, conserve, renovate and regenerate this Grade I Modernist landmark (by Wells Coates, completed 1934) that had in recent years fallen into an acute state of disrepair.
The works comprised all the operations necessary to re-establish a sound and architecturally authentic building envelope.
The scheme provides 25 flats for sale under shared ownership exclusively to keyworkers, and eleven further flats for the open market.
