The English House 1900-1939

Ref: C2224562

In the early twentieth century plutocrats built lavish houses, fitted with the latest technology. Lutyens was the great architect for the rich whether they wanted the old English style or classical grandeur. He was not alone, Voysey created his own distinctive version of the domestic vernacular, as did other architects associated with the Arts and Crafts movement. The growing belief that good housing was essential for all was reflected in local authority estates. Good housing should also be beautiful and healthy and this lay behind model factory towns like Port Sunlight and to garden cities and suburbs. Speculators were anxious to take advantage of the increasing numbers of people who could afford to buy a house and suburbia grew round stations and along main roads. Often they adopted details borrowed from Arts and Crafts design. Alternatively were houses influenced, however, distantly, by the international modern movement, streamlined, elegant and usually expensive.
