Somerset House £240

Designed by Sir William Chambers

When – 1776

Where – London

This palatial building in the Neoclassical style is positioned on the south side of the Strand, London. It overlooks Waterloo bridge on the River Thames and is the original site of the Tudor Palace. Somerset House was designed by Sir William Chambers in 1776 as the pay office for the Royal Navy at the height of its power. The nations hero, Lord Nelson would have walked through these arches on many an occasion. Sir William Chambers’ work was eventually eclipsed by the work of Robert Adam whose classical styling swept through London at this time, pushing aside the Palladian purity adopted by Chambers.

Somerset House commissioned this model which shows shows one part of the building, its arched centre being the main entrance to the office and courtyard.

Weight: 3.7 kg

Dimensions:13″w x 8″h x 2.5″d
