English Arts&Crafts Cottage

English Arts & Crafts Cottage

Distinct from the much more common Craftsman expression of Arts & Crafts in North America, the English style looked to the historical country cottage and its relationship to the “Cottage Garden” as popularized by Gertrude Jekyll. Although this Nicholson & MacBeth designed example has lost the naturalizing and integrative benefits to the facade of a cottage garden, it displays many of the elements of the classic English Arts & Crafts cottage. The high pitched mass of the slate clad Dutch gable roof serves to push down and anchor the half-timbered first floor to the landscape. This roof is broken by a small slate clad hipped dormer with diamond paned windows, and a significant gable dormer which has been dressed with English clay shingles; both slate and clay being “natural” in keeping with the Arts & Crafts philosophy. Picture this circa 1926 cottage tucked in a garden akin to the image below, an integrated part of a natural landscape.
