I feel privileged that I visited this house and it was quite by accident ,i work for Thames Water and was attending to investigate a leak in the courtyard. Sir Richard MacCormac , who was the owner invited me in a showed me around , and explained how he met Jocasta Innes , and how she reclaimed the building and imposed her style on it. I had heard of Jocasta Innes but didn’t know what she was known for. The house I hope will be preserved for posterity,
Jocasta Innes died at home in Spitalfields over the weekend and today I am republishing my profile as a tribute to a talented woman who enriched so many people’s lives through her creative thinking.
