Gribloch: The Evolution of the Architectural and Interior Design of a 1930s Scottish Country House

Gribloch: The Evolution of the Architectural and Interior Design of a 1930s Scottish Country House Although Sir Basil Spence is recognised as one of our greatest twentieth-century architects, little has been written about his early work, particularly his pre-war Scottish country houses. This study of one such house, Gribloch, is based on original drawings and on correspondence between Spence, his clients John and Helen Colville, and their numerous ‘consultants’, notably Nikolaus Pevsner, the American architect Perry M. Duncan, and the interior designer John Hill. The resultant house, which preserves much of its original interior decor and landscaped setting, is a unique fusion of Regency and Modernist styles. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

Although Sir Basil Spence is recognised as one of our greatest twentieth-century architects, little has been written about his early work, particularly his pre-war Scottish country houses. This study of one such house, Gribloch, is based on original drawings and on correspondence between Spence, his clients John and Helen Colville, and their numerous ‘consultants’, notably Nikolaus Pevsner, the American architect Perry M. Duncan, and the interior designer John Hill. The resultant house, which preserves much of its original interior decor and landscaped setting, is a unique fusion of Regency and Modernist styles.
