TQ 27 SW KINGSTON-UPON-THAMES KINGSTON VALE

2/35 Dorich House

II

1935-6. Detached house overlooking Richmond Park. Designed by the artist Dora
Gordine for her own use as a sculpture studio and gallery as well as a house,
assisted by the architect H I Cole. The building was designed as a sculptural
object to be seen in the round and has no one principal elvation. The plan of the
house is strongly axial and this is reflected in the symmetry of the four
elevations. It is three storeys high with a roof garden. The two side elevations
and the southern end elevation are of three bays with projecting centres and tall,
narrow, round-headed windows to the ground and first floors. In the outer bays of
the side elevations these windows are grouped together in threes and set beneath
thermal windows on the second floor. On the north elevation the ground and first
floors are fully glazed to provide north light to the studios. Interior not seen.
