The Modern House team launches Inigo to specialise in selling historic homes

Since its inception, The Modern House has sold some of the UK’s most architecturally significant 20th-century homes, helping to re-popularise modernist styles and offshoots along the way. This month, the team behind the award-winning company turns its gaze to the country’s historic gems with the launch of Inigo – a new estate agency that specialises in period homes.

Inigo’s name pays homage to 16th-century architect Inigo Jones – the first truly modern English architect to apply Vitruvian rules of proportion and symmetry in his buildings.

“The Modern House was founded on the idea that good domestic design has a positive impact on our lives,’ says Albert Hill and Matt Gibberd. ‘Principles like space, light, craftsmanship and a connection to nature have a timelessness that transcends any particular period, and we’re excited about exploring these themes in a wider context.’

Inigo’s first listings will launch this spring, accompanied by editorial and photography marketing the properties it sells, which will range from humble worker’s cottages to Victorian villas and opulent Georgian manses.

Gibberd and Hill added: ‘We both grew up in centuries-old houses, and have first-hand experience of the spatial and decorative quality of buildings from the Georgian era, in particular.’

The new venture launches amid the pandemic when interest in rural and coastal properties in the UK has tripled. Follow Inigo on Instagram to be the first to know it goes live.
