National Trust property designed by the `Modern Movement' architect Erno Goldfinger
A Modern Movement interpretation of a terraced house, 2 Willow Road is as about as far from the stereotype of a National Trust property as it's possible to get. Set in leafy Hampstead, it was built by architect Erno Goldfinger in 1937 and remained his family home until 1994.
The stylish modernist aesthetic of the building is matched by its contents — along with furniture and toys designed by Goldfinger are works of art by Henry Moore, Bridget Riley, Max Ernst and Marcel Duchamp. Goldfinger's uncompromising approach is not everyone's cup of tea — his Trellick Tower in North Kensington remains controversial although flats inside are still much sought after. An introductory video is shown at regular intervals.
Look out for…
Art by Henry Moore, Max Ernst and Bridget Riley.
