Architects Richard & Su Rogers Colorful 1968 London Home for Sale at The Modern House

The Modern House website serves two purposes. Firstly, to provide a place to go for those looking to purchase the most interesting and original modern architecture in the UK. Secondly, to lure you into spending an hour at your laptop snooping through beautiful homes when you’re supposed to be working. The latter lead us to this incredible Wimbledon property. Famed architect Richards Rogers (Pompidou Centre, Lloyds of London, The Millennium Dome) alongside his then wife and also an architect, Su Rogers, originally built this 1968 South West London home for his parents. The design is completely open plan and flexible, moveable partitions allowing residents to choose their own configuration, with the original, eye-popping, color scheme still in place. Featuring an equally impressive outhouse designed by the couple’s son, Ab Rogers, and originally envisioned as a flat and potter’s studio, take a tour of this historic Grade II listed property in our galley and see/read more over at The Modern House where it’s currently under offer.
