£3.2 million: Richard Rogers designed this modern and unusual four-bedroom home in Wimbledon
Richard Rogers, the architect behind Paris’s Pompidou Centre and Terminal 5 at Heathrow, once described Rogers House as “the most successful small project I have been involved in”. He built the four-bedroom house, which sits on a garden plot opposite Wimbledon Common, with his wife Su in 1968.

Originally intended for his parents, the property is still owned by the family and is on the market for the first time. It is one of a very small number of Modern houses that have been given a Grade II listing by English Heritage. Constructed from steel and glass, it takes inspiration from design pioneers Mies van der Rohe and Richard Neutra.

Culture Minister Ed Vaizey thinks it is “the most technically interesting and visually striking house in Europe”. If his budget stretches to £3.2 million he could call it home.
