LESCAZE HOUSE

11in high, 4in wide, 3in deep & 4.6lb approximately.

In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of Brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique.

Lescaze approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident.

Chisel & Mouse have produced a stunning sculpture of the front facade, paying a fitting homage to one of New York's most desirable residences.

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. Stylish ornaments, gifts or presents that are handmade in Britain and look fabulous on a desk, shelf or wall.

Address: 211 East 48th Street New York, United States

BAUHAUS DESSAU (L)
BAUHAUS DESSAU (L)

11in high, 7in wide, 3in deep & 5.5lb approximately.

The Bauhaus Dessau was designed by Walter Gropius in 1925 to house the Bauhaus design school. The building bares many similarities to his critically acclaimed Fagus Factory. The school was responsible for launching the Modern Movement and shaped much of the architecture of the 20th century.

The Bauhaus Dessau with its strong lines and simple form is an outstanding example of modernist architecture.

GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART (M)

8in high, 5in wide, 2in deep & 3lb approximately.

Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh Building, "The Mac" or "Toshie" as it is commonly known, was voted Britain's favourite building of the last 175 years in a 2009 RIBA poll. It has been at the heart of the Glasgow School of Art's campus. Building work was started in 1897 to a design created by the school's most famous alumnus, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was a leading proponent of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau movements in the United Kingdom. The Mackintosh Building is his masterwork. Unfortunately it was consumed by fire recently and its future is uncertain.

Our architectural sculpture is of the slightly off-centre entrance facade. The facade is asymmetric with tower like masonry walls and small windows remembering Scottish baronial architecture.

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.

Address: Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G3 6RQ, Scotland.

ISOKON BUILDING
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.
