This series relates to Lawn Road Flats, a block of flats built in Hampstead in 1933 to a design by Wells Coates. The flats were primarily inspired by Molly Pritchard, and were largely furnished by the Isokon Furniture Company. They were also serviced and a restaurant and club was later added, the Isobar. The series includes: documents concerning the planning, design, finance and construction of Lawn Road Flats; correspondence relating to their maintenance, repair and daily administration; correspondence relating to each individual flat and its occupants; and publicity materials, photographs and press cuttings relating to the scheme. In 1968 the flats were sold to the New Statesman Publishing Company and three years later to Camden Council, documents relating to these transactions are also in this series.
