WHAT WE’RE SEEING
Wednesday 27 March
Darke House, 25 Montpelier Row, London, TW1 2NQ
This coming Wednesday 27 March, Darke House, designed by Geoffrey Darke of Darbourne and Darke as his family home in 1968, will be open to receive visitors in a rare and exclusive event. The new owners have renovated the house with the help, advice and support of the Darke family. Designed and built on infill land, it has been described as a ‘modernist gem’ boasting a Georgian-proportioned front elevation with a more avant-garde ‘turret’ design at the rear. Nearly all of the original features remain including extensive Peter Nelson lighting, original glass mosaic bathroom tiling, solid wood kitchen and all fittings, integral teak bookshelves in the living room and Danish triple-glazed wooden windows throughout. The house was grade-II listed in the mid 2000s as the country’s ‘best example of a modernist house in a Georgian setting’.
The event is organised by Open City. For more information, including tickets, visit: Open City
