Goldfinger's House

Goldfinger\'s House

The museum to modernist architect Erno Goldfinger.

Location: 2 Willow Road, Highgate

Description: This is one of the few original 1930s modernist houses open to the public - featuring many of the treasures, furniture and objets d\'art of one of the most influential figures in the British modern movement - Erno Goldfinger.

Controversially, Goldfinger wanted to build flats here and the plans were rejected. The redesigned set of terraces were intended to be a family home as a way to give Ern a chance to demonstrate his skill and vision as an architect. It was completed in the summer of 1939.

The Hungarian-born architect had a glittering career and you can see how he lived in this museum to his vision and genius. Highlights include Goldfingers black laminate top desk in the dining room featuring unique pivoting drawers.
