Famous Victorian buildings

The term Victorian architecture describes several - predominantly revival - architectural styles that were popular from the mid- to the end of the 19th century; this period largely corresponds to the so-called Victorian era or the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) after whom it was named. Though the leading Victorian architects were more or less guided by architectural styles of past periods, some of the world s most iconic buildings have been constructed during the Victorian era. Examples include: Palace of Westminster Home to the Houses of Parliament…

Famous buildings in Glasgow

The Glasgow School of Art is often considered to be Charles Rennie Mackintosh s finest work and is now one of Glasgow s most famous buildings. Colin Bisset takes a look inside and finds a building full of contradictions: spare but ornamented, distinctly Scottish but also international. Like many great designers, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was an outsider, and a Scottish one at that. Perhaps that explains why he was appreciated more by Europeans than the British. He was influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement and their reverence for natural forms…

Age of buildings UK

We don’t have individual building age open data in the UK, unlike in some other countries (the data has been used to great effect in New York City and Amsterdam) but the Valuation Office Agency, which amongst other things decides council tax bandings for residential properties, has published some interesting data on how old houses are in England and Wales – it’s their “dwelling ages” dataset. A separate governmental organisation, the ONS, publishes house prices summaries, at a relatively small-area* scale, on a quarterly basis for the previous year…

We re good at seeing the big picture,says Jane Duncan, who has run her own practice in Amersham for 15 years. This could mean maximising a property s potential, reconfiguring rooms or overcoming a building s constraints. It was exactly that big picture that Christian Allsop says he lacked during his extravagant conversion of four, separate flats, into one huge home in Chelsea 12 years ago. He saved money by not employing an architect, but once he started living in the house, he realised it didn t quite hang together. We ve got a very dark basement…
