The Garden

One of London’s hidden gems, Dorich House Museum (Kingston University) is located a ‘deer’s leap’ from Richmond Park, in south-west London.

Dorich House is the former studio home of the Russian sculptor Dora Gordine and her husband the Hon. Richard Hare, a scholar of Russian art and literature.

The grade II-listed building was completed in 1936 and is an exceptional example of a modern studio house created by and for a female artist. It was built on the remnants of an old orchard which is still present on the site and maintained by Kingston University's Biodiversity Action Group.
