"C. F.A. Voysey was one of the most renowned British architects from the 1890s until the outbreak of the First World War. His white-rendered houses with stone window-dressings and sweeping slate roofs combined clarity and simplicity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. However, it was his conviction that no detail of a house was too small to deserve the attention of its architect which led him to design everything from the plan of the garden to the handles on the kitchen-dresser." "Voysey's belief that the house should embody 'Quietness in a storm, Economy of upkeep, Evidence of Protection, Harmony with surroundings, Absence of dark passages' placed him at the heart of the Arts and Crafts Movement, while the elongated simplicity of his furniture together with the fluid, undulating curves of his decorative designs made him a formative influence on Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Henry van de Velde and the Art Nouveau style." "During the 1890s Voysey's reputation spread across Europe and America, only to be revived in the 1930s by John Betjeman, Nikolaus Pevsner and others in Britain, when he was hailed as a precursor of the Modern Movement. He was awarded the RIBA Gold Medal in 1940 at the age of eighty-three." "This monograph is illustrated with photographs specially commissioned from the photographer Martin Charles. Placed throughout the text, they form a comprehensive visual record of Voysey's work, as well as individual, detailed pictorial accounts of his major houses."--Jacket

The transformation of St Pancras Station by Alastair Lansley( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the end of 2007, St Pancras became the new London terminus for the high speed channel tunnel rail link to continental Europe, taking over from the old Waterloo International. Central to this change, the entire structure and area around St Pancras have been renovated and transformed as part of the largest civil engineering project in Europe. This book looks at the history and process of the project and shows how the old St Pancras - one of London's finest Victorian stations has been both restored to its original glory and extended for the demands of 21st-century rail travel. Packed full of specially commissioned photography and written by those intimately involved in the project, The Transformation of St Pancras Station tells the remarkable story of how the original building was renovated and expanded with major new additions and how the surrounding area has been regenerated to become a desirable destination in its own right"--Page 4 of cover
