ISOKON BUILDING

4.5in high, 11in wide, 3.5in deep & 5.5lb approximately.

The Isokon building in Lawn Road, Hampstead, London, is a concrete block of 34 flats designed by architect Wells Coates for the influential furniture designer Jack Pritchard and his wife Molly. They were built between 1933-1934 as an experiment in communal living and named after Pritchard's furniture company 'Isokon'. Wells embraced Le Corbusier's architectural mantra that buildings should be 'machines for living' (machine à habiter). This ideal was best reflected in the Isokon building.

The Isokon company folded during World War II and in 1972 the building was sold to Camden London Borough Council. It gradually deteriorated and was abandoned in the 1990s and lay derelict for several years. In 2003 the building was sympathetically restored by Avanti Architects, who specialise in the refurbishment of modernist buildings, for the Notting Hill Housing Trust. It is now primarily occupied by key workers under a co-ownership scheme and has been granted Grade I listed status.

Address: Lawn Road, Hampstead, London, RG5 3EL, England.

ARSENAL STADIUM (L)
ARSENAL STADIUM (L)

10in high, 7in wide, 2.5in deep & 4.8lb approximately.

The art deco facade of Arsenal Stadium, or "Highbury" as it is commonly known, is unique amongst football stadiums and is unmistakably Arsenal. To capture this classic design, Chisel & Mouse have created an architectural sculpture of the amazing "East Stand".

Arsenal Stadium was built in 1913. In the 1930's the site was redeveloped and the outstanding Art Deco East and West stands produced. Architects Claude Waterlow Ferrier and William Binnie were responsible for these splendid designs.

Arsenal FC have recently moved to their new Emirates stadium and the old Arsenal Stadium has been redeveloped as residential flats with parts of the East and West Stands retained.

Each of our architectural sculptures is handmade in our studio in Sussex, England. They are made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

VILLA SAVOYE (M)

4in high, 8in wide, 2.5in deep & 2.2lb approximately.

Le Corbusier's 20th century modernist masterpiece Villa Savoye was completed in 1929. It is regarded as his finest work and the refinement of his own architectural style. His guiding vision was to create a "machine for living in" and he succeeded.

Situated in Poissy, on the outskirts of Paris, Le Corbusier's take on a French country house was designed as a retreat for the Savoye family. The house is functional yet stylish. With its pilotis, open plan interiors, flat roofed terrace and strips of generous windows - the house represents a revolution in modern living.

The house was refurbished between 1985 and 1997 and is one of the 17 projects by Le Corbusier that have been added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Address: 82 Rue de Villiers, 78300 Poissy, France

TRELLICK TOWER (L)
TRELLICK TOWER (L)

11in high, 6.5in wide, 2.5in deep & 5.5lb approximately.

Erno Goldfinger's Trellick Tower is a Grade II listed 31-storey block of flats in North Kensington. The tower is built in a narrow oblong with a separate lift tower linked at every third storey to the main block. Its Brutalist design was not to everyone's taste and was unpopular with many of its council tenants. However over the years the building has become highly desirable and home to up-and-coming designers and entrepreneurs. The building is striking and now has a place in architectural history as London's most iconic tower block.
