The twentieth century house in Britain : from the archives of Country Life by Alan Powers( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its foundation in 1897, Country Life has consistently featured new British houses, thus building up an unrivalled photographic archive on twentieth-century architecture, and one that covers a much wider variety of houses than any other. This archive forms the basis for Alan Powers' new study of twentieth-century houses, illustrated with 200 stunning colour and duotone photographs, some of which are reproduced here for the first time. The book is divided into chronological chapters covering the 1920s to the 1990s, preceded by an enlightening introductory essay on the changing nature of architectural style over the course of the century. Both town and country houses are included, as well as remodellings of earlier buildings where the result has a clear twentieth-century character, such as London's glorious Eltham Palace

The Jacobean country house : from the archives of 'Country Life' by Nicholas Cooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gabled manor houses of the early 17th century are, for many, the epitome of the English country house; indeed, Jacobean houses from the core of the National Trust collection. This book tells the absorbing story of the evolution of the Jacobean country house. Though the Jacobean period itself spanned only 22 years (1603-25), it was to have a major impact on English domestic architecture. This was an exciting period of experiment and discovery, with an extraordinary range of architectural styles being brought into play. Plan Classical formality coexisted with French, Italian and Dutch examples adapted to English tastes, the result of an explosion in new ideas that also produced revolutions in other aspects of life - notably the English Civil War
