2 Willow Rd.




















Despite living in London as a student for 3 years and visiting on countless occasions since, there's never any shortage of new things to go and have a look at. Of course, being pop-up town central, things move almost as fast as out here in HK. Conversely, a lot of things really don't change, and as such it was a real joy to be thrown into the early 20th century capsule that is Erno Goldfinger's house in Hampstead. Now owned by the National Trust, this house is a real joy to look around. My photos may not fully capture the spirit of this house (they are a little unofficial), but if anything does, it's the tools on the wall in the study adjacent to the dining room. A man after my heart!
