Janet Street Porters House
The house designed by Piers Gough for Janet Street-Porter
Location: Britton Street, Clerkenwell, London
Description: No longer her house, but still remarkable for it's modernist architecture.
In 1987 she commissioned a house from CZWG Architects in Clerkenwell, and it was designed by Piers Gough. It is in an eye-catching design, notable among the largely Georgian houses in the area.
It is a riot of beautiful rubbed and gauged brickwork in deep red bricks a nice change from the ubiquitous yellow London stock.
Janet lived here for 15 years, and is a much sought after property.
