Synopses & Reviews


Excerpt from Recent English Domestic Architecture

One noteworthy development in modern archi tecture is the increasing attention paid to gardens. It has taken a long time to persuade the layman that the planning of the garden is an important part Ofthe architect’s work. The importance of design in the grounds around a house can hardly be over-estimated. One has, as it were, in the house a purely artificial creation in the midst Of natural surroundings, and it is the function Of the gardens to form a connecting link between the two, a link which combines the artificial and the natural in a formal arrangement Of growing plants and trees.

Interior decoration still proceeds on eclectic lines. The restoration of Hengrave Hall by Messrs. Davenport and Tapper, and the reparation of an Old Somerset manor house by Messrs. Niven and Wigglesworth, have Of course been carried out on traditional lines; but in the case of new houses architects have felt themselves free to adopt any style commendable to themselves and their clients. P’anelling is one Of the most favoured treatments for rooms, usually of oak in dining-rooms, halls, &c., and of pine, painted, in drawing-rooms and bedrooms. In some cases mahogany has been adopted, and in one or two cases kauri pine, which, when stained dark, is hardly to be distinguished from oak at a short distance. Mahogany panelling painted white has in the past been used in the very finest work; but this has always seemed to us a misuse of a very beautiful wood.

Metal casements with leaded lights are still largely used for windows; but in the Georgian type of house the sash window with stout bars holds its own, and the layman is apparently getting over a somewhat unreasonable Objection to small panes. The large sheets of glass, so beloved of the average client, have a most potent effect in destroying the scale of a dwelling, and it is to be hoped that this fact is getting generally recognised.
