This year we will again be hosting an Open House London tour. On Saturday 16th September we will be guiding two walking tours, looking at Stanmore's Interwar and Post War houses. Beginning on the Warren Estate, featuring a host of interwar Art Deco and Streamline Moderne houses by Gerard Lacoste and Douglas Wood Architects, the walking tours will also explore dwellings by the likes of RH Uren, Owen Williams, Gerard Kaufman, Rudolf Frankel and others. We will see how the expansion of rail and road links fuelled the rise of Metro-Land, and how architects bought modernism to sit amongst the prevalent suburban tudorbeathen style.
The Open House London page for the tour is HERE, you can also download the app.
IMPORTANT INFO: The tours will be on Saturday 16th September ONLY. There will be a two tours, the first at 10am, the second at 2pm. The meeting place for the tours will be opposite Stanmore Tube station. The tours will last between 1.5-2 hours and will include a steep climb at points, please bring protective clothing and suitable footwear. We look forward to seeing you there!
