High-tech Hopkins House listed

Hopkins House by Michael and Patty Hopkins

Family home was also Michael and Patty Hopkins’ original office

The high-tech house designed by Michael and Patty Hopkins for themselves in the 1970s has been listed at grade II*.

The Hopkins House, which is tucked between Victorian villas on Downshire Hill in Hampstead, north London, was built between 1975 and 1976 and was used by the couple as their office for the first decade of the practice they set up together.

The two-storey glass and lightweight steel house is built down a steep slope from the street and is entered via a metal footbridge.
