2 Willow RoadManaged by the National Trust, 2 Willow Road is, in fact, a Modernist terrace of three Hampstead houses originally designed and inhabited by Hungarian architect Erno Goldfinger. The concrete and red brick construction replaced a row of traditional cottages, which were demolished in the face of strident opposition from locals. James Bond author and Hampstead resident, Ian Flemming, opposed the construction of 2 Willow Road and named his villain Auric Goldfinger after the controversial architect. Number 2 - Goldfinger's family home - is the largest of the three buildings. A stunning spiral staircase exists as the only single structure to interrupt the open, spacious interior created by the concrete frame. Furniture designed by Goldfinger remains inside the house, alongside 20th century art works by Bridget Riley, Marcel Duchamp, Henry Moore and Max Ernst.

Best for:
Modernist architecture, 20th century art, concrete and construction.
