(2011). The villa: ideal type or vernacular variant?
In: Guillery, Peter ed.
Built from Below: British Architecture and the Vernacular.
Abingdon: Routledge, pp. 49–72.
This chapter explores the small middle-class villa in outer London from c. 1650-1800. It argues that far from being an elite ideal type villas in this context tended to ignore the well-documented Palladian model. Using the example of Greenwich as a case study the article argues for the small outer London villa as early and widespread evidence for a 'London suburban vernacular' architecture.
