The Whitehouse LIMITED EDITION £580

Limited Edition of 300

Designed by James Hoban

When – 1887

Where – Washington, USA

In 1792 a competition was held for the design of the President’s House.  George Washington and the three competition commissioners passed over Jefferson’s Rotonda scheme and selected the more conservative design submitted by the Irish-born architect James Hoban.

Hoban’s design followed the Anglo-Palladian country house tradition rather than that of a villa of the Veneto. Originally built without the projecting north portico (added in 1829), the White House bore a strong similarity to Seacomb Park, Hertfordshire, a country house illustrated in Gibbs’ “A Book of Architecture.” Following the death of the client, Seacomb Park was never realised.

Dimensions: 16.5″w x 6.5″h x 7″d

Weight: 6kg
