Featuring twenty-one modernist homes and their residents, this unique and beautifully designed book presents an overview of the buildings and architects, considers the historical and political context, and explores what it’s like to live on a modernist estate today.

Through interviews and original photography, we're offered a rare insight into the lives of these significant buildings and those who inhabit them.

Golden Lane Estate
Keeling House
