The houses are part of a charity auction to raise money for the children's charity, KIDS. Alas, I'll not be bidding in the auction as prices are already between £1,000 and £10,500. But these miniatures are now on display to the public at Bonham's London, where the auction takes place next week on 11 November – and it's free to look.
Erno Goldfinger's Balfron Tower: "Brutalism here is revealed as exciting as a country cottage," say the designers.
This one, Jack in a Box, is by architect Guy Holloway, in collaboration with Hemingway Design. "It makes the imaginary reality," explains Holloway. "The child is confronted by a simple box. When switched on, the inflatable structure inside begins to fill with air powered by an integrated fan. The child can live within their fantasy, becoming 'Alice'."

All the profits from the auction are to be donated to KIDS, which supports young people with disabilities and their families. See all the other designs and read about them all here.
