selling a piece of architecture?

Like selling a specialist car, selling an architect designed house might just require an agent that really understands the product. Step up the modern house 


“A sumptuously packaged estate agency for some of the UK’s most remarkable homes”… Vogue Magazine


If you have an interest in investing in architecture or want to sell a piece of architecture this will interest you. From selling just modernism when they set-out, 14 years on ‘the modern house’ now  sells mid-century homes, contemporary homes, newbuilds, eco homes and urban spaces.

The secret of their success… a team that really loves modern architecture, understand it, can value it and sell it… and perhaps for a better price as they’ve found the right buyer.

The market they reach is not defined by postcode search either… as they are connected with a wider audience it opens up the market that they reach from someone looking for a home in a specific area, to looking a client hunting for a specific level of quality of and design.

The modern house invest heavily in their audience too which includes much more than website listings. They publish an average of 40 articles a month, reach an enormous online audience through their webiste (15 million hits a year), have an award winning blog and 135k followers on instagram.

We’re delighted we have a project which has passed their design review panel process and look forward to working with Albert Hill, Matt Gibberd and their team soon.

Renzo at the Royal Academy

It was the closing weekend of the exhibition by Renzo Piano entitled ‘Renzo Piano – The Art of Making Buildings’ this weekend.

I made the trip to London to see it and we queued down the staircase as news it was the last few days of it being on show had clearly got out! Three rooms of characteristically beautiful drawings and models of sixteen of his most important and well known projects were laid out in the newly converted Burlington Gardens building at the Royal Academy.

The centre piece was undoubtedly the giant masterplan model of over a hundred of the practice’s buildings together with a video interview given for the exhibition. Variously he candidly discussed his approach to architecture, life within the studio in Genoa and trying to never lose sight of how buildings go together ‘piece-by-piece’.

A well worthwhile visit with the added bonus of viewing the recently completed David Chipperfield extension/conversion of Burlington Gardens was the icing on the cake!
