Modern the new classic

  • Comment

It seems the classicists have missed a trick

At a time when the world is undergoing one of the worst economic crises of modern times, it seems modern housing is enjoying something of a renaissance.

Astragal noted with interest how specialist outfit The Modern House Estate Agents announced it will be celebrating its fifth anniversary this summer. Far from struggling to encourage people to part with vast sums of cash for London properties, it seems there is a healthy interest, with recent sales of properties designed by David Adjaye, Ernö Goldfinger and James Stirling.

So, if you are willing to part with almost £2 million for The Tall House in Wimbledon by Terry Pawson or pay £1,000 a week for a concrete box in Gosfield Street, central London by Jamie Fobert, you know where to go.
