New Highlights for the Iconic Houses Network

Iconic Houses is proud to welcome 17 more classics of 20th century residential architecture to its growing network. The new additions represent 11 different countries, eight decades and a wealth of styles, and include masterpieces by architects as diverse as Antoni Gaudí and Jean Prouvé.

Iconic Houses is delighted to increase its unique network of significant 20th century homes by adding 17 top-notch house museums to its number. Representing 11 different countries, the new members help to increase the range and deepen the coverage of Iconic Houses, embodying as they do a spectrum of architectural styles from the last century, including art nouveau, art deco, Jugendstil, Modernisme (Catalan modernism), modernism, organic and vernacular, up to the ‘open form’ architecture of the 1960s.
Each of these 17 houses in its own way represents a milestone in modern residential architecture and we are delighted to welcome them onboard. Together, they contribute to the unique story of 20th century architecture as told by iconic houses over the years and around the world. You can explore them by clicking on the links below. Among them are detailed presentations in our Specials section showcasing masterpieces in all their glory: here you’ll find Henri Sauvage’s Villa Majorelle, Henry van de Velde’s Villa Esche, Gaudí’s Casa Battló, Neutra's VDL Studio and Residences, Erich Mendelsohn’s Weizmann House, A.
