About this data

Discussion

It always reminds me of the The Mary Ward Centre (previously Settlement) by Smith & Brewer, in London's Bloomsbury. That was a little later, 1895-98 and is said to bear influences of Shaw, Townsend and MacIntosh (according to Woodward & Jones). To Pevsner, the influences are Voysey (cornice and roof), Townsend and Lethaby (entrance) and Shaw (tripartite windows). No-one mentions Wright or Adler & Sullivan!
