1880 – Doone Terrace, Lorna Road, Brighton, Sussex

Architect: W. Galsworthy-Davie


“The necessity of making these houses commercially successful compelled the architect to avoid all quaint conceits and picturesque oddities ; however, by the introduction of colour and patterns in the cement -work, a little life is given to the design, and the usual objectionable appearance of cement-fronted houses is avoided. The walls are built solid, but those facing south and west are battened internally. Hot and cold- water services are laid on to each house. Special attention has been given to the lighting and ventilation of the staircases. The rentals are from about £1)0 to £60 per annum. Mr. J. G. Sheldon, of Cliftonville, Brighton, is the builder, and the architect is Mr. W. Galsworthy-Davie.” Perspective published in The Building News, September 3rd 1880.
