Peter Foggo and David Thomas are responsible for three of the most notable 20th century architect-designed residences in the UK. You can see one of the others HERE. These structures excite me and I would love to live in something like this. Find a nice pice of land and place a couple of these and be good to go. The homes were built in the early 60’s and in 2009 the new owners put the house through an extensive programme of restoration and extension.

Peter Foggo

“Peter Foggo (1930-1993) and David Thomas set up practice in 1959 after studying architecture together at Liverpool University. They shared a passion for the work of Mies van der Rohe and even once persuaded the legendary architect to travel to Merseyside to talk to the students. Between 1959 and 1965 they designed a number of private houses as Peter Foggo and David Thomas Architects which are among the few buildings in Britain that stand comparison with the celebrated ‘Case Study Houses’ of Richard Neutra, Charles & Ray Eames and Craig Elwood which were built in California between 1945 and 1960. Subsequently both architects became directors of Arup Associates and Foggo in particular became known for the 1985 Broadgate development in the City of London, whilst David Thomas provided a significant contribution towards the transformation of Hong Kong’s infrastructure as Head of Arup’s Hong Kong practice.”
