Continuing through the years and houses in the new C20 Society's book '100 Houses 100 Years'. Today: Woodlands Crescent (2004), Poundbury, Dorset, designed by Ben Pentreath, offering a sound basis in practical domestic planning in the Woodlands Crescent houses in ‘Marmiteville’ Poundbury. The result is reminiscent of Michael Searle’s Paragon development in Blackheath (1793-1807) – both schemes share a desire to avoid the fragmented look of paired villas and to create an ensemble, especially satisfying when they front onto a curved road. Essay on Woodland Crescent is by Alan Powers. Photo: John East '100 Houses 100 Years' is published by @batsfordbooks. More information on: http://www.pavilionbooks.com/book/100-houses-100-years/
Entering the final stages on site at Poundbury; with the scaffolding coming down it's now possible to get a better view of our handmade ionic columns and capitals. Designed by @BenPentreath, made and installed by Stevensons of Norwich.
