The Isokon building in Lawn Road, Hampstead, London, is a concrete block of 34 flats designed by architect Wells Coates for the influential furniture designer Jack Pritchard and his wife Molly. They were built between 1933-1934 as an experiment in communal living and named after Pritchard's furniture company 'Isokon'. Wells embraced Le Corbusier's architectural mantra that buildings should be 'machines for living' (machine à habiter). This ideal was best reflected in the Isokon building.
