2 Willow Road is the middle house of a terrace of three in Hampstead which was designed by architect Ernő Goldfinger, a key member of the Modernist movement, for himself and his family. It was completed in 1939 and they lived there until his death in 1987. It is now in the custody of the National Trust and is open to the public.
