22 Hampstead High Street,

From modernists to tobacconists

Nestled on a corner of this leafy London village, Cubitts Hampstead celebrates the artistic history of this liberal enclave. Its interior is a homage to the modernists who called Hampstead home in the twentieth century, including Barbara Hepworth, Piet Mondrian, and Henry Moore.
Honey-stained oak wood panelling draws on the designs of Alvar Aalto, and play on the building’s former incarnation as A.D. Walker, tobacconists. They sit above a rich quarry of tiles inspired by Le Corbusier’s Maison de la Roche. Large windows allow the sunlight to flood the shop floor, bouncing off its wooden features.
A dedicated Bespoke consultation room includes a bureau inspired by an original desk from 2 Willow Road, alongside former Bauhauser and Hampstead resident Marcel Breuer’s ‘Cesca’ chairs, ‘Isokon Long Chair’, and stools.

Bespoke at Cubitts Hampstead

Three silhouettes are available exclusively from Cubitts Hampstead, made to measure in over 130 colours as part of our bespoke service.

Rosslyn is a self assured bold cat eye with a slight asymmetry to mimic the undulating topography of Hampstead, and holes punched from the temple tips paying homage to the sculpture of Barbara Hepworth.

The second frame takes its name from Egon Riss, designer of the Penguin Donkey, whose tapered legs and organic curve are mirrored in the ornately detailed bridge.

Finally Mawson, based on Hampstead’s hidden Pergola, a remarkable work of garden architecture. Padded temples and a sloping nose bridge offset the square profile, mirroring the arches and doorways that line the structure.
