The reopening of the Isokon flats in Hampstead was a real family affair, with the celebrations well attended by those with a genuine link to the 1930s apartments. Descendants of Jack and Molly Pritchard - the furniture designers who dreamt up the scheme - and DJ Matt Black (of dance music pioneers Coldcut), the grandson of Isokon's eccentric Canadian architect Wells Coates, were all there to toast the immaculate restoration of the much-loved building. The Notting Hill Housing Group and Avanti Architects have restored the flats to their original splendour.

The Grade I-listed ocean liner is now ready to sail into the backdrop of any Art Deco TV drama, like Poirot. Agatha Christie, a former Isokon tenant, would have been proud.
