Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens was an incredible architect, says our surveyor Matthew Simper. He was widely recognised for adapting traditional architectural styles to the requirements of his era.
Born in 1869, he died in 1944 and some describe him as being the greatest British architect of the 20th Century. He specialised in the Arts & Crafts style, especially in his early working years.
We were therefore delighted when our practice was commissioned to survey a substantial Cambridgeshire period property boasting a 4,000 sq ft three-storey extension, designed by Lutyens in 1925.
This is a perfect example of his ability to blend styles successfully and with many fine features, creates a highly impressive residential dwelling.
