Kettle's Yard was originally four cottages, but it was bought in the 1950s and knocked into one by Jim Ede, a former curator at the Tate Gallery, who decorated it with work given to him by the many artists he'd worked with, including Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (who would become the subject of a biography by Ede, Savage Messiah.) Ede and his wife Helen held open houses daily at which visitors and students could look at the house and the art it contained, and in 1966 he gave the house to the University of Cambridge.

It was closed in 2015 for a major renovation and now includes a four-floor education wing.
