Caledonian Estate 1906 (James G. Stephenson) London

The Edwardian Caledonian Estate adds a series of archways, gallery access with open staircases, and semi-colonnades at some entrances to the Victorian mansion block model. This project is related to the Bourne Estate; the key difference is the set back from the street reducing distancing itself from it (and hence the city). In addition, it doesn’t set out to work like a city-within-a-city; it’s main organisational focus is the courtyard.
