SIR EDWIN LUTYENS 1869 – 1944
Sir Edwin Lutyens was an English architect who revitalized the traditional, darker Victorian style, bringing light and breathing life into the English country house he would redefine. Sweeping rooflines, buttressed chimneys, and long runs of windows became the hallmark of his designs he would often finish with added touches of local influence. One of his masterpieces is the Great Dixter house in England—a romantic recreation of a medieval manor. Playful knee-high windows ensured even the youngest children would have a view of the gardens below as, in true Lutyens style, the magic lies in the relationship between the house and the garden landscape.
