The Dorich House stands tall and unapologetically unique in the suburbia of southwest London, a monument to 1930s architecture, interior design, and art.
The name of the Grade II listed building comes from its creators: Dora Gordine, a Russian sculptor, and her English husband Richard Hare, a scholar of Russian Art and literature.
Gordine designed the house, which Hare financed as a working studio to showcase her sculptures. The building contains a plaster studio, double-height space, a studio facing north over Richmond Park, and an exhibition space with many examples of Gordine's work.
The second floor was the couple's living space, a chic 1930’s flat above a museum, complete with a moon door between dining and sitting rooms. The top of the house is home to a vertigo-inducing terrace with superb views over Richmond Park and surrounding areas.
