So three beds instead of two and a position that means views from its lounge and balcony towards Ham Common. But one thing is constant, This is also a well-renovated / well-maintained apartment in the sought after modernist development. Langham House Close (as you probably know) was the work of Stirling & Gowan, the former commemorated annually in the Stirling Prize for Architecture. It was built in the mid-1950s and is said to be influenced by Le Corbusier’s Maison Jaoul.

This apartment is largely true to the architects’ original vision, with some modern additions, including an updated kitchen (although some originality remains) and a modern bathroom. Elsewhere though, little has changed, with the exception of some clean, fresh finishes. Most importantly, the signature central chimney breast is still in place in the living room.
