Langham House Close was designed in 1955 and built 1957/58 by James Stirling & James Gowan, It is often referred to in architectural literature as their “Ham Common Flats”. It is considered to be influenced by Le Corbusier but also includes vernacular touches and ironic features like the concretegargoyles, corbels and the mantel on the impressive exposed stock brick chimney breast . Unlike many significant modernist projects, it was a privately funded development and not social housing.

This was Stirling's first major work and led to him designing the Engineering Building at Leicester University in 1963 which established his reputation. His other later works include the History Library at Cambridge, the Performing Arts Centre at Cornell University, the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, the Braun Factory in Germany, the Sackler Museum at Harvard and the Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart.
