It is clear that Baillie Scott made a significant contribution to twentieth-century architecture. The main themes of his agenda – the development of alternative small houses for the average householder; open and spacious planning, continuity of internal and external space, exploration of the rich textures of materials – are as important today as they were in the early years of the century. The work of Baillie Scott effectively ensured an important and enduring relevance for Morris’s legacy.
This book includes many newly commissioned photographs of Baillie Scott’s houses, as well as original drawing and new research. By looking at his writing and revisiting his buildings – some previously unknown – it makes available the work of an important architect of the Arts and Crafts movement. It reveals for the first time the beauty of Baillie Scott’s architectural works and the fascinating breadth of his theory and practice.
