Dolls’ house by Zaha Hadid fetches £14,000 at charity auction


Diminutive buildings by some of the UK's best architects and artists raise £86,900 for disabled children


A charity project for which architects including Zaha Hadid and FAT Architecture created dolls' houses for auction has raised nearly £90,000 for KIDS, a charity for disabled children.

The dolls' houses, which also featured specially created art by the likes of Grayson Perry and Chris Ofili went under the hammer at London auction house Bonhams on 11 November, with some selling for more than £10,000

The star lot was a house called 'This Must be the Place' designed by superstar architect Zaha Hadid, which went for £14,000; not far behind was A Dolls House by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, which netted £11,000.

The project was initiated by property developer Cathedral Group and the idea came from the dolls' house Edwin Lutyens designed for The British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1922.

Here are the top six:

  • This must be the place by Zaha Hadid Architects - £14,000
  • A Dolls House by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands - £11,000
