The breath-taking single-storey home, designed in the 1960s by Richard Rogers, has been recently restored by Gumuchdjian Architects and is now a most fitting environment for the Harvard University Graduate School of Design (Harvard GSD) fellowship residents as well as a relaxed, spacious setting for on-going events and seminars. Standout features of the renovated Wimbledon House include two wet rooms within the lodge, fully clad in HI-MACS® surfaces.
22 Parkside or Rogers House as it’s also known, was a blueprint for industrialised housing and a radical departure from more common building methods of the time. It follows a modular format that would allow for the renewal of technology and developing needs over time made possible by the long-life steel portal frame structure, giving the house its iconic appearance. The property is characterised by the then-radical use of fully glazed facades to create a contemporary composition of courtyards, gardens and linked interior space.
