Isokon Building

Isokon Building by Chisel + Mouse.

Own your own piece of iconic architecture with Chisel and Mouse's model of the Isokon Building.

An innovative exploration into communal living, the Isokon Building came to life between 1933 and 1934 under the guidance of architect Wells Coates. Designed for the esteemed furniture designer Jack Pritchard and his wife Molly, Coates embraced Le Corbusier's philosophy that buildings should function as 'machines for living' (machine à habiter).

The structure, comprising 34 flats, derives its name from Pritchard's furniture brand, 'Isokon', which temporarily closed during the turmoil of World War II. The building was assumed by the council in 1972, and over time, it fell into disrepair, eventually becoming abandoned in the 1990s and remaining derelict for several years.

In 2003, a considerate restoration project took place, and today, the building predominantly houses essential workers through a co-ownership initiative and has achieved Grade I listed status.
