Dorich House Museum

Dorich House was the studio, gallery and home of the sculptor Dora Gordine (1895-1991) and her husband the Hon. Richard Hare (1907-1966), a Professor of Russian Literature.

Built in 1936, and restored by Kingston University in 1994, Dorich House is a fascinating example of art deco design with its severe exterior concealing the warmth of the interiors where Richard and Dora worked and lived.

Visitors can view the major collection of Dora ’s work as well as the couple’s private collection of art and artefacts from Imperial Russia displayed in the unique surroundings of this studio home described as ‘one of Kingston’s hidden treasures’.
