What you'll do
We will meet at Brunswick House - Lassco's the famous Architect Salvage yard in a Neo Classical Georgian House in Vauxhall - the only surviving intact Georgian House left in the area - We will walk through the rooms exploring the items for sale - and discuss Neo-Palladian, Rococo and Neo-Classical English design. have lunch and then walk down to Kennington Park House to see how the influences of Classiscal Design can translate into the modern world of airbnb interiors - how the area can influence design & narrative. A bit about Brunswick House and Vauxhall Brunswick House dates back to the mid seventeenth century (the vaulted cellar still gives an idea of its size). The house was extended in 1758 on freehold land owned by the Dawson family, purchased by Richard Dawson in 1737. In 1776 it was described as a 'mansion house, with offices, coach-house, and stable, lately erected by John Dawson' (Richard Dawson's nephew and heir). The site of the house and gardens measured nearly three acres and included a piece of land with a timber dock on lease from the Dean of Canterbury. Lassco Salvage ARchitecture Yard took over the lease in 2002 opening 2004 having taken two years of restoration
