2 Willow Road


Ernö Goldfinger’s celebrated house in Willow Road was the National Trust’s first Modern Movement acquisition. Our condition survey identified the necessary repairs required to secure the fabric and facilitate the opening of the building to the public. The work involved comprehensive repair of the external envelope including roof repair, brick, concrete and window repairs together with mechanical and electrical services upgrade and reconfiguration to suit the different environmental conditions required for conservation and residential use.

We also proposed several judicious interior adaptations to provide a separate curator’s flat and publicly accessible video and education room which was designed to orientate visitors to the house and provide information on its architectural and cultural significance within the wider context of the Modern Movement.

The fully refurbished house is open to the public
