Not just a modernist-inspired building, this 1950s two-bedroomed apartment in the Parkleys development in Richmond, south west London is also grade II-listed.
Span Houses have been mentioned here in the past. it was a company that built housing estates in the UK between 1948 and 1984 with an eye on good design and good surroundings. This Eric Lyons-designed Span House on the Templemere, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey is a great example.
Another Span house on the market, this time an Eric Lyons-designed property in Ashtead, Surrey.
Designed by architect Lyons for Span in the late 60s, it is a K-Type house, considered the best of the designs and like all Span properties, very much about space and light. That means a good amount of glass, open spaces and the blurring the edges between outside and indoor space, with communal areas that encourage residents to mix.
