Walter Gropius stayed here from 1934-37. Over famous residents include the artist Moholy-Nagy, write Agatha Christie and architect Marcel Breuer.

When we first visited in the late 1990’s the place was not only decrepit but quite scary, with signs of squatting and drug use. It has since been completely refurbished.

Isokon stands for Isometric unit construction.
