8A Fitzroy Park
Highgate, London, N6 6HS

8A Fitzroy Park was built between 1965 and 1967 by Hal Higgins of Higgins and Neyfor Peter Epstein, and was designed with a very angular look through the use of concrete and steel frame. The Architect's Journal of 1973 said: "Epstein had seen Higgins and Ney's earlier house in Spaniard's End (now in LB Barnet), and commissioned what was to be their major private house. While the living room is reminiscent of the romantic Case Study' houses of Los Angeles, widely published in the 1950s, the thicker scantling of the steel and the planning of the semi-independent pavilions shows that the design is entirely of its time -and one of the most adventurous in terms of complexity and in its method of separating the different functions of the house."

The building was designated Grade II listed on 29th February 2000.

"As the house is private, this was taken from the street outside; the tall "towers" are still very prominent."
