Synopsis

Houses and Gardens by E.L. Lutyens by Lawrence Weaver

This book, first published in 1913, helped to establish Lutyen's name in domestic architecture. His career lasted 50 years at a time when Britain was at the height of its prosperity and his clients included men of wealth and often power, who wanted their homes to match their idea of themselves: solidly built, imposing and with strong individual character. Lutyens (1869-1944) was a traditionalist architect and a master in the use of space and the production of interesting angles or views. Arches gave glimpses, light was graded for effect. He was skillful at blending house and garden, and for this, the result of his long collaboration with Gertrude Jekyll, provided the overall effect which was the hallmark of his domestic work.
