An interesting opportunity to have a tour of a terraced house at Ravenswood, a modernist estate in north London designed by Robert Ballie for St Pancras Housing Association in 1967. Located on the edge of the estate, the house has been adapted and expanded by Maccreanor Lavington Architects and design studio Khaa. The extension, designed to complement the character of the original building, has bespoke window frames, cladding and floor in douglas fir. The one-hour evening tour will be conducted by Kay Hughes of Khaa and Richard Lavington of Maccreanor Lavington. For more information and to book tickets, visit Open-City London Architecture Tours.

This exposed concrete house by Davide Macullo Architects in the Alpine village of Lumino in Ticino, Switzerland, was completed in 2009. Based on the idea of a ‘minimalist monolith’ it is a modern take on the traditional stone built houses that characterise the surrounding area.
