There are many architects and many houses that deserve to be better known. This is a collection of essays on houses of exceptional interest designed by relatively unknown architects between the 1920s and 1970s. The focus is on practices outside London, where architects could develop clusters of individually commissioned houses of medium size in conditions of creative freedom. With archive images never previously published and new, specially commissioned photographs, the essays here make a substantial contribution to the Twentieth Century Society’s quest to expand knowledge of English architecture since 1914, showing what hidden treasures still remain to be discovered and protected.
