The 70s House
For some the 70s is the decade that style forgot, however in a world of bland new build housing, 70s houses don't look half as bad as they used to. At least you got a proper garden and space to park your car.
The 70s House by David Heathcote takes you on a journey through the era of the avocado bathroom suites to show you some of the best examples of house design of the era. Ranging from the tail end of 1960s modernism to the three-up-two down Span houses complete with wooden cladding and porch.
Heathcote's particular favourite is the house designed by architect Michael Manser for the MP John Howard, a striking low-slung smoked glass rectangle standing on a plinth of coarse engineering floor tiles.
You can read a full interview with Heathcote in this Saturday's Telegraph or you can go out and buy his book (pictured).
