In Memoriam ACP 1928 CMP

Site: Halsey Ricardo (1 memorial)

SW3, Old Church Street, 117

From The Modernists Journals Project we lean that this house was "designed by Halsey Ricardo for his daughter Anna ... and Maresco when they married" and that in 1953 their daughter Naomi was a student at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and living with her parents in this house which was full of with works of art.

The plaque, inside the porch on the left wall, was erected by the Pearces (ACP and CMP) in 1928, the year Ricardo died.

At RIBAPix and again you can see Ricardo's drawings for this house.

We've found a few other architects who built houses for themselves (in Ricardo's case, for his daughter), listed at Geoffrey Darke.
