A comprehensive survey of fifty of Britain’s most architecturally significant houses from 1900 to the present, featuring established names alongside the work of fresh emerging talents in the twenty-first century. Covering the major design movements of the past 120 years, including art deco, modernism, and postmodernism, this book also offers a unique insight into changing tastes and attitudes about the home in Britain.

In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the architectural history and heritage of Britain. This has been driven by many important political, cultural, and social factors, from Brexit to the rise of the staycation, as well as a powerful and renewed interest in the design of house and home.

The featured houses include examples designed by architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Edwin Lutyens, Berthold Lubetkin, Serge Chermayeff, Richard Rogers, and many others. Twenty-first-century innovation and imagination are evidenced in homes by established and emerging talents, such as Seth Stein, Nick Eldridge, Robin Partington, and Ken Shuttleworth.

Much more than a celebration of influential houses, this richly illustrated overview is a comprehensive guide to shifting architectural movements and ideas, a survey of great architects with international relevance, and a journey through changing tastes, styles, aesthetics, and patterns of living.
