    Default Rogers House

    One of the Most Important Houses of the 20th Century: Rogers House

    Designed by the architects Richard and Su Rogers in 1968, this is one of the most important and celebrated houses of the 20th century. It has been described by Richard Rogers – who went on to design projects including the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Lloyds of London and Heathrow’s Terminal 5 – as “the most successful small project I have been involved in”. The house sits centrally on an outstanding garden plot opposite Wimbledon Common. The site is very secluded and private, yet just a short walk from the center of Wimbledon Village.

    Originally designed for the parents of Richard Rogers, the property is still owned by the family and is on the market for the first time. It is one of a very small number of Modern houses that have been given a Grade II* listing by English Heritage and is one of very few British houses that stands comparison with the finest twentieth-century houses in America and mainland Europe. Although the design is rooted in the classic Modern style established by the likes of Mies van der Rohe and Richard Neutra, in terms of its construction it represents a radical departure from what had come before.

    yeah the furniture and colours make it look like a kindergarten but the house itself has nice lines. shame about the crayola colour scheme.
