    Modernist Estates: Chrissie MacDonald and Andrew Rae

Architecture: Top blog presents London's modernist spots as living spaces

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The rise and rise of Apartamento magazine proves a fundamental human truth – we are as a species inherently nosey. The urge to snoop around other people’s spaces is compulsive; new ways to feed my habit are always welcome. This excellent blog curated by designer Stefi Orazi celebrates some of London’s most interesting modernist architecture, but crucially it does so not merely from an outside-looking-in perspective. Stefi features these idiosyncratic estates as places where people live which adds so much more than simply appreciating aesthetically interesting exteriors. Her latest feature with Chrissie MacDonald and Andrew Rae of our pals the Peepshow Collective sums up perfectly the brilliance of Stefi’s bog. There’s also posts about places to buy in these estates and the odd bit of miscellany as well. Consider yourself bookmarked.
