100 days of London: Roundup 1-10
And here are the first 10 of our 100 days of London architecture!
Kynance Mews | Rustic colourway: an incredibly cute little mews in South Kensington. Cobbled streets, window boxes and pastel-coloured house fronts - idyllic!
Kew Gardens (Palm House) | Rustic colourway: One of my favourite places in London, I could (and do!) while away an entire day there. The stunning rose gardens with their incredible scent, the treetop walkway, and that fabulous Great Broad Walk with the longest double herbaceous borders in the country.
The Leadenhall Building | Dawn colourway : The Cheesgrater has become another distinct icon of the London skyline (and features on a few of our cityscapes!). The City of London Building of the Year 2015, it opened in 2014.
The London Eye | Jewel colourway: Launched in 2000 as a temporary structure, the Eye has become one of the most recognisable icons on the London skyline. Designed by Marks Barfield Architects, it's currently the largest cantilevered observation wheel in the world.
Albert Bridge | Midnight colourway: A road bridge between Chelsea and Battersea, I love seeing this in the distance as the London Victoria train crosses over the Thames, especially when lit up at night.
Bank of England | Moody colourway: To me, a London architectural classic. The bank was founded in 1694 and moved to its location on Threadneedles Street in 1734.
The Albert | Earthy colourway: A Grade II listed building on Victoria Street, this pub always stands out to me amongst the taller buildings and concrete. Built in 1862, it feels like a slice of history has been preserved.
A London Mews, South Kensington | Airy colourway: Confession here - I got lost wandering amongst the mews around South Kensington, this is based on another one of the gorgeous streets.
Admiralty Arch | Sunset colourway: Another classic piece of London architecture to me. Grade I listed, it was completed in 1912 to commemorate the death of Queen Victoria.
Arnos Grove tube station | Midnight colourway: A Grade II* listed building on the Piccadilly line, designed by Charles Holden, I love the geometric shapes of the building.
